Over the fifteen years I have known him, Gawain has worked with amazing determination for the union. He is an enthusiastic teacher and passionate about inclusive education. He inspires all who work with him, developing relationships with support staff, leadership and teacher members. He is committed to continued research into teaching and learning. He developed robust and democratic structures locally when he was Oxfordshire Secretary and grew membership and involvement across the districts in his executive area. A committed unifier, his intellectual pursuit of research based trade union activity, convinces me he is the perfect candidate for this role.
That’s why I’m backing Gawain for Deputy General Secretary.
