What does it mean for me?

I'm an ATL member, what do I need to do?

As an ATL member, you have automatically been transferred into the ATL section of the National Education Union, which will exist during the transition period up to January 2019. You do not need to do anything, and you will continue to receive the same excellent benefits and support that you have before.

We continue to be the union for your whole career, whether you’re a trainee or newly qualified teacher, a member of support staff, a lecturer or a leader.

The best of ATL and NUT

Combining the expertise and experience of both ATL and the NUT, the National Education Union is effective and powerful voice in education. Already, the school cuts campaign has put funding firmly on the political agenda, and our workload campaign has helped members up and down the country take control of their working lives.

We are committed to making the education sector a great place to work by continuing to campaign for sustainable workloads, fighting for a fairly funded education system and championing your pay and working conditions; a great place to teach, which values and promotes professional expertise and learns from relevant data; and a great place to learn, with a broad curriculum to motivate learners, allowing them to develop their interests and skills for the future.
