NUT School Representative booklet
NUT reps play a vital role in the structure of the union and are central to its continued success as the largest teacher’s union. The role of NUT rep is enormously rewarding, and many of the skills are transferable to professional life.
This guide aims to set out some of the activities a NUT rep can get involved in. A rep should look to involve other members in activity, not only to share workload, but also to increase the sense of a collective presence and improve the Union’s effectiveness in the workplace. By acting together at work we can make a difference to the issues that are of importance to teachers.
