Ten 10 Downing Street prime minister government

NASUWT – The Teachers’ Union congratulates new Prime Minister Keir Starmer and the Labour Party as they come into government.

Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary, said:

“After 14 years of decline, the country has voted for change that must now deliver a new deal for children’s education and for those who work in our schools and colleges.

“The Government has the opportunity to enter a new era of social partnership working that will deliver the changes needed to make this the best country in the world for children and young people to grow up and be educated. 

“The last 14 years have been deeply damaging for children and young people as teacher training targets have been missed year after year, and as more and more experienced and qualified teachers have left the profession prematurely.

“Improving opportunity and outcomes for children and young people requires a national workforce plan that is capable of making teaching the profession of choice once again.

“Members of the NASUWT are looking to the new Government to listen to their concerns and take the steps needed to secure the world-class conditions of service that our teachers deserve.

“We look forward to working with the new Government to secure a New Deal that will deliver for teachers and for their pupils.”
