Coventry Teachers Association
Union of Teachers
As a student you are entitled to
join all of the Teacher Unions for free. It is
important that you join at least one for your own
protection. If you run into difficulties during your
course and you don't feel you can discuss them with
the University - give us a ring - we can often help.
Why should you join the NUT?
The NUT prides itself on being a Professional
Association. Our policies are based on Educational
Principle. We have taken a strong line in opposing
the Green Paper - we believe that performance related
pay is the biggest threat to the teaching profession
in recent years. We support Inclusion as long as it
is properly resourced. All pupils should have the
right to go to their local school and receive an
appropriate Education. We continue to campaign for
reduced class sizes.
In Coventry we represent well over half of the
teaching profession. We have won some of the best
conditions of service in the country with 20%
guaranteed non-contact time in Secondary Schools and
4% in Primary Schools.
