Become a Representative
How You Can Represent The Union In Your School
If there is no school representative at your school then why not become the rep?
Often members respond with “I don’t know enough” or “I don’t have the time”. But even being a contact point within your school is a huge benefit to both the Derby Branch and the school. NASUWT provides full, nationally recognised training courses and if you become the school rep then you are entitled to time off from school in order to attend. Not only will you then become more confident in dealing with issues on your own, you will learn that you are always fully supported by your Branch Secretary, other officers and Regional Officers where appropriate.
If there is no rep at your school at the moment then organise a meeting and/or an election and re-vitalise your own school group. Together we are stronger. Please do contact the Branch Secretary for help in doing this.
