Services and Benefits of Membership

The National Union of Teachers is both a professional association and a trade union. It cares for the children in our schools and for their teachers. The legal and professional services available to members are second to none. Membership brings with it access to the widest range of benefits and services.

The Union at your doorstep:
The NUT's nine regional offices and its Wales Office provide members with a unique and unrivalled service. With experienced professional and legal staff at each centre, the NUT makes available to its members a direct personal service providing legal and professional advice, guidance and support. All enquiries are dealt with in confidence. There is now a new Government committed to radical changes in the procedures under which teachers are employed. Consequently there has never been a greater need for teachers to have the protection of the NUT.

Automatically available to all members are the union's legal and professional services. All members are covered by group insurance and support services including:

insurance cover for personal accidents, hospitalisation, personal property (inc spectacles), malicious damage to motor vehicles in school or college premises

These policies and services below are all subject to terms and conditions. Also available are a wide range of NUT endorsed services bringing good value and integrity. These include:

discount shopping
