Teachers from across the UK, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Gibraltar will be gathering in Belfast for the Annual Conference of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, over the Easter weekend.
 
The Conference marks the start of NASUWT’s centenary celebrations, commemorating 100 years since the union was formed.
 
The issues to be debated at the Conference have been selected by a ballot of all of the Union’s teacher and headteacher members ensuring that the motions are truly reflective of the issues which are important to teachers.
 
All the current concerns of teachers are reflected in the motions which have been balloted including teachers’ mental health, pupil indiscipline, education funding and the teacher supply crisis. 
 
Age discrimination, pay, assessment, pension reforms and access to training are also high on the agenda.
 
Over the course of the Conference, the NASUWT will be issuing a number of reports on pupil indiscipline and violence, the bullying and harassment of teachers, the impact of emails on teachers’ workload and teachers paying for classroom resources and basic necessities for pupils.
 
Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:
 
“This Conference will be a particularly special one for the NASUWT as we celebrate 100 years of the NASUWT being the voice of teachers.
 
“The Conference brings teachers together from eight countries in which the NASUWT organises, enabling them to share their experiences and debate the issues which are of concern to them in their working lives.
 
“It is clear that although the education policies across the various nations and administrations may differ teachers and headteachers are facing the same challenges in particular low pay, pupil indiscipline, excessive workload and under-funding.
 
“The NASUWT has a proud history of defending and protecting teachers in the face of turbulence and challenge and Conference will reaffirm our commitment to continuing to do so.”
