Shape education Northern Ireland

We want education policy making to be above politics and based on research into what works along with professional consensus.

Making your voice count

When teachers are handed policies and expected to make them a reality, their sense of professionalism, autonomy and self-belief are attacked. Until there are meaningful mechanisms for teachers to be involved in policy setting, it’s impossible to reach a state of genuine policy success.

Shape Education

ATL members have shaped a vision for education - a new deal for young people and education staff. ATL's manifesto, created through our Shape Education campaign is the voice of the education profession.
