The NUT uses the term 'Black' in a political context to encompass all members who self-identify as Black or Asian and all other minority ethnic groups who do not identify themselves as white. It is a key priority of the NUT to ensure that its Black teachers have a voice in the Union, in the classroom, and in broader society, and do not face barriers to promotion, representation or participation. We support teachers and pupils to eliminate attitudes which generate racism and discrimination across all areas of school life including policies and procedures, curriculum and the training opportunities that schools offer their employees.
Current structures in the NUT ensure that Black members are able to participate include: the Constituency Seat for Black members on the NUT's National Executive; the Black Teachers' Conference; and the Advisory Committee for African, African-Caribbean and Asian Heritage.
