  • Do you think that our education system deserves better?

Since 2010, the Government has embarked on massive changes to education.
But the majority of these changes are not supported by parents, teachers or schools. The NASUWT and NUT are opposed to the Government’s changes to teachers’ pensions and pay and are working together to protect jobs and working conditions for teachers.
Schools are on the brink of a major crisis that is damaging the teaching profession and will undermine education for years to come.

Members of the NASUWT and NUT are saying: “Enough is enough – it’s time to rally for the
education of our children and young people.”

FREE to attend. Come and find out more about the next steps in the NASUWT and NUT campaign!

Speakers include:

Chris Keates, General Secretary NASUWT,
Kevin Courtney, Deputy General Secretary NUT,
and others including a parent, a school governor and a headteacher.
