Education and early years
At Community, we’re proud to support and represent thousands of people working across the education and early years sector in the UK, including:
- Teachers, tutors and lecturers
- Teaching assistants and education support staff
- Early years and nursery workers
- Early Career Teachers (ECT’s)
- Self-employed and private tutors
- Headteachers, principals and leaders
Whether you work in a school, college, university, nursery or creche, all education and early years workers work tirelessly to shape the minds of future generations. Unfortunately, issues around recruitment and retention, heavy workloads and low pay severely impact the sector. That’s where we come in!
Our team of dedicated education and early years officers, trade union representatives and regional officers are always on-hand to support and guide our members working in the sector through any issues or challenge they may face, and negotiating locally and nationally with government to secure better policy, pay and terms and conditions for everyone working across the sector.
In 2020, Voice, the union for education professionals joined the Community family, and with it, brought centuries of experience and knowledge.
