I’m supporting Gawain’s campaign to become DGS. As NUT Executive Member in Oxfordshire and leader of several local campaigns, he showed tremendous energy and skill in arguing for a properly funded education service and defending all teachers’ rights. Gawain helped to create a stronger support network for teachers at school level and is passionate about professional unity, playing a vital role in the merger leading to the NEU’s creation. He is a strategic thinker and an effective communicator who will enable teachers and other school staff to work together for the changes which NEU members and the children deserve.
