A new campaign to raise awareness of Further Education amongst MPs has been launched by the UK’s newest teaching union.
The National Education Union (NEU), formed from a merger of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) is reminding MPs about its campaign EfFEctive Education: securing skills for a post-Brexit future.
Part of this campaign aims to introduce politicians to post-16 institutions in their local area to raise awareness of Further Education amongst MPs when many of them may have gone straight from school to university and had no experience of FE.
The NEU came into existence on 1 September 2017. With more than 450,000 members, it is now the largest education union in the UK.
