The premier union for teachers in England and Wales.

Women teachers

The majority of NUT members nationally are women and the union holds regular women’s conferences, schools and events to which Mid-Essex Association sends members. This page will reflect reports and issues raised in those events and important issues for women teachers in general.

Essex NUT Women’s Network Facebook Group – Join us!

Dear Colleague

We are pleased to announce the start of the newly formed Essex NUT Women’s Network group. We are actively seeking female members of the association to join us.

The following areas will form the main focus of the group:

  1. Emotional support
  2. Work-life balance
  3. Childcare
  4. Women’s health
  5. Legal rights
  6. Flexible working hours
  7. Ageism
  8. Pensions
  9. How to challenge sexism

The group has been set up to start organising training courses/workshops/speakers on legal rights, career progression and being more assertive/confident. Additionally we are planning to organise some well being days with a chance to meet and talk.

If you are interested in joining, look us up on Facebook Essex NUT Women’s Network Group.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you

Essex NUT Women’s Network Group
