I’m supporting Gawain in running for Deputy General Secretary because he’s got the drive, experience, understanding and ability to help lead the National Education Union in these turbulent times.
As Chair of the NUT’s Professional Unity Committee Gawain was a key figure in the bringing together of the NUT and the ATL to create the new Union. He recognises that this advance was just one step in the fight to build a single education union for all education workers.
The NEU campaigns for educational advance as well as the welfare of its members. Involved in local, regional and national campaigns to protect state education, Gawain has an interest in pedagogical issues on both a national and a global scale.
