The NASUWT is leading the way on teachers' mental health and wellbeing by addressing the issue with governments and policymakers, supporting members across the UK in industrial action against adverse management practices, and developing training resources.
Not Part of the Job
As part of the NASUWT's ongoing campaign to tackle pupil indiscipline, which is one of the top concerns for over 80% of teachers, we have produced a set of hard-hitting campaign posters on abuse and respect.
Climate Action Week
The NASUWT is aware that there is likely to be a climate crisis action week in the week leading from Friday 20th September. This may include calls for pupils and staff to walkout of schools in protest to encourage action on climate change.
Big Question Survey
The NASUWT Big Question Survey is the only annual national survey of teachers and headteachers tracking trends in teachers’ and school leaders’ opinions and highlighting their views across the UK on a range of subjects.
Experienced teachers play a vital role in the success of every school, inspiring, nurturing and providing stability for pupils, as well as their younger colleagues. However, they do not always get the support and recognition they deserve and tackling this age discrimination is a top priority for the NASUWT.
Scotland's Teachers Deserve a New Deal
Despite teachers’ hard work and dedication, there is a growing crisis in the teaching profession and unless government and employers face facts and accept this, then the entitlement of all children and young people to high-quality education is being placed in jeopardy.
NASUWT research indicates that one in five members has experienced sexual harassment in the workplace by a colleague, manager, parent or pupil since becoming a teacher.

A set of Gender Equality Challenge Principles that supports and champions the NASUWT campaign for equality for women and girls.
