Last quote by Kevin Courtney

The NEU does not think it is appropriate for teaching apprentices to complete their degrees at the same time as undertaking the apprenticeship programme. Teaching requires specialist knowledge in many areas, including child development theory, as well as the acquisition of pedagogical skills. This takes time both inside and outside the classroom.feedback

I think the conference is going to vote for these motions and then we will be discussing with other unions how to take them forward.feedback

The Conservatives did not include this in their 2015 manifesto. If the Government has legislated not to have new grammar schools, there shouldn't be ways of sneaking around it. That's what we think schools are doing at the moment. The Government is looking at other ways of selective schooling - having off-shoots, and having selective schools within a multi-academy trust and that they will say that's like a stream in a secondary school. We think that would be illegal and open to legal challenge.feedback

Racism is not discussed enough in schools, even at a time when intolerance is increasing within society. These findings remind us that it is a defining feature of BME teachers' lives and deeply affects the experience of young black people. It is urgent we open up conversations about racism in staff rooms, in classrooms and in the curriculum. Children come to school in a world that is not equal. BME teachers and pupils face racism in the streets, in popular culture and in employment.feedback

We can't be expected to sit back and see class sizes going up, arts, dance and drama teachers being dismissed, children losing opportunities – and not to think that at some stage there wouldn't be an industrial response to it.feedback

If the government has legislated not to have new grammar schools, there shouldn't be ways of sneaking around it. And that's what we think the schools are doing so we are looking at those cases at the moment.feedback

This is a fantastic result for members of both unions and for education. For too long governments have played divide and rule amongst unions. Today marks the beginning of the end of that. The NUT and ATL both have proud histories, but speaking with one voice we will be a stronger force standing up for education, teachers, the wider education profession and for the children and young people we teach.feedback

The government's funding proposals will have a devastating impact on schools that serve the most deprived communities and some small isolated rural schools. Not only will they be hit by cuts to funding during this parliament but many will receive no extra cash for many years after 2020 despite inflation pressures. Given that all schools are struggling to make ends meet, this situation is unthinkable not to mention unmanageable.feedback
