The National Education Union is committed to making the education sector a great place to work. It will continue to campaign for sustainable workloads, fight for a fairly-funded education system and champion pay and working conditions.

It will make education a great place to teach - which values and promotes professional expertise and learns from relevant data; and a great place to learn - with a broad curriculum to motivate learners, allowing them to develop their interests and skills for the future.
