The NEU is committed to challenging discrimination on the grounds of gender and sexual orientation, and to campaigning on behalf of its members to ensure they are being treated equally. We work to influence policies at school, local and national levels relating to both working conditions and rights for our members and for the young people we work with. We work with other unions and organisations who share our aims.
Please see our LGBT+ Equality page for more information about the support and opportunities the Union offers.
At NEU Conference 2020, the following speficic actions relating to LGBT+ issues were agreed for the whole union:
We are working to try and implement as many of these actions in Tower Hamlets and the City.
This page is dedicated to hosting resources which educate and celebrate.
It is a work in progress.
We will theme resources by phase. There is also a section for NEU members which may be useful in keeping you informed or as a source for the development of other resources.
We will use this page to host links to resources for educators to use in schools. These are resources that have been recommended to us by our members or produced by them. Please use your professional judgement to adapt any resources to suit your classes and the context in which you teach.
This event takes place annually in February to highlight issues relating to LGBT+ people and to education and inform.
