While teachers working in all sectors of the education system across the United Kingdom face many similar challenges and concerns, the NASUWT recognises that sixth-form college teachers can face particular issues and challenges.
In the context of a funding regime that is being cut year after year, area reviews looking at sixth-form college sustainability and academisation, the NASUWT will continue to inform members through its regular bulletins and regional and national briefings.
Tackling the workload of teachers working in sixth-form colleges and ensuring that their professional status is protected and enhanced remain key priorities for the NASUWT.
