What you can do
- Email your MP to ask them to tell Nicky Morgan that something has to change.
We also surveyed members who had left the profession during this year (other than for retirement): 86% said workload was the principal or a significant factor in them leaving the profession. Teacher supply expert John Howson says it is unlikely that any of the key subjects measured by UCAS will meet their teacher training number targets for this year.
Fighting for education outlines the Stand Up for Education campaign. It covers the attacks we have faced, the victories we have won and the issues we still need to fight for. Please also join the debate in your workplace and respond to our consultation ballot – vote yes, yes in the NUT ballot.
The ballot opened on 26 September 2014 and will close at midday on 22 October. NUT members who do not receive ballot papers by 1 October, should individually contact the Union’s ballot hotline, which will operate from 1 October to 17 October. Phone the hotline between 9am and 5.15pm on 020 7380 6300 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The general election in 2015 will be a watershed moment for education in England and Wales. Parents and teachers have a golden opportunity to use the time before the general election to pressure politicians. The NUT manifesto makes recommendations for priorities and policies to benefit all children.
