Why you should join the NASUWT

NASUWT - the Teachers Union


With approaching 300,000 members, the NASUWT is the only Union that represents teachers across the whole of the UK .

The Union provides an array of services including high quality support, advice and representation for members; legal representation and professional seminars and conferences. 

NASUWT is also politically independent. It makes no donations either directly or indirectly. The Union's aim is to serve the best interests of teachers no matter what party forms the Government at national or local level.

NASUWT strongly believes that no teacher or student teacher should enter the classroom without the essential legal and professional cover that the NASUWT provides.

The NASUWT also organises its members locally at workplace level around the issues they tell us matter to them. The campaigns we run make real improvements to teachers' working lives. The NASUWT has campaigned tirelessly around the working conditions and excessive workloads of teachers. In particular the NASUWT has demanded a sensible limit on teachers' working hours, a reduction in excessive workload and bureaucracy and pay and conditions which enhance the professional status of teachers and headteachers.
