Event Details

There is no doubt that teaching is a profession - we hear it all the time from teachers themselves, their leaders, politicians and parents. But what does it mean to be a profession? How do teachers get to be better professionals? Who is responsible for maintaining professional standards? And what is the role of the government in all this?

Labour Teachers and Unions21 have come together to present three diverse perspectives on teacher professionalism, teacher training and teacher quality to answer these questions and more.

Mary Bousted - ATL General Secretary, former teacher and teacher trainer
Nic Dakin MP - Member of Parliament for Scunthorpe Country, former teacher and current Education Select Committee Member
Philip Edumundson - Head of Collaborative Learning for Ormiston Education, working with teachers across the West Midlands to build education communities with clear impacts on learners

Labour Teachers

Labour Teachers is a grassroots movement of teachers in the Labour Party who have come together to forge a progressive, popular and persuasive education policy for our party, rooted in our experience of real life in schools.


We bring Labour Party members at the chalkface together with Labour policy-makers through regular events, debates and online discussions. 


We also work to defend Labour values in the teacher trade unions and to create a strong and productive relationship between our unions and our party.
