National Education Union, NUT Section, Newham.

On 1 September the National Union of Teachers (NUT) amalgamated with the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) to form the National Education Union (NEU).

The National Education Union brings together 450,000 teachers, lecturers, support staff and leaders across the UK, to form the largest education union in Europe.

As Kevin Courtney, Joint General Secretary, says: “The National Education Union gives us a powerful voice to stand up for students, our members and education to make a real and profound difference from the off.”

Locally, you will also see a change to the appearance of material you receive from Newham Teachers’ Association – The association is now known as National Education Union, NUT Section, Newham.
