The NUT and ATL are holding a one-day event in Manchester on 28 February for education professionals to learn strategies and share ideas. With workshops focusing on tackling workload and raising the profession’s status, this free event will give you the chance to talk with colleagues about what you can achieve in your workplace and in your union.
Deputy general secretaries, Kevin Courtney (NUT) and Peter Pendle (ATL), will also discuss how the unions’ manifestos offer a shared vision for education and the opportunity to work together to strengthen our voice in the run-up to May’s election and beyond.
On 27 January Holocaust Memorial Day will be marked in homes, schools and communities both nationally and internationally. This year we mark 70 years since the end of the Holocaust and the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
The NUT in partnership with the Holocaust Educational Trust have worked together to produce the free teaching resource Mosaic: Victims of Nazi Persecution. The teaching resource focuses on minority groups targeted by the Nazis during the Holocaust and is designed for use with students aged 13 and above.
Mosaic: Victims of Nazi Persecution copies can be ordered by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Updated copies can also be downloaded from here.
Education can and does change attitudes. Find out more here.

Anthony was a young man who was murdered in a brutal, racially motivated attack in Liverpool on 30 July 2005. The lecture is one of a range of activities that keep Anthony’s memory alive and continue the fight against racist violence. It is held every year during Black History Month.
This year’s event will be the tenth anniversary of Anthony’s murder. The Memorial Lecture will be hosted by the NUT in conjunction with the Walker family and the Anthony Walker Foundation. The lecture represents a vitally important event for the NUT and for our developing partnership with the Anthony Walker Memorial Foundation.
This year the lecture will take on Friday 16 October 2015 in Liverpool. Details of the venue and programme will be provided in due course.
Divisions and associations are asked to bring this important event to the attention of members in their areas. The lecture is free but booking is essential. If you would like to attend please email AWL@nut.org.uk or telephone 020 7380 4724.
