To support young teachers on the specific issues they face, the NUT runs a number of events specifically for teachers aged 35 and under.

World Teachers’ Day Social

On 2nd October, we will be holding a social to celebrate World Teachers’ Day (5th October).

This is open to all members and is also our welcome event for young teachers, NQTs and teachers new to Oxfordshire (all of whom can have a first drink on us!).  Come and join us from 5pm onwards (venue 1855 at Oxford Castle OX1 1AY) for a relaxed, informal drink and a chance to meet other Oxfordshire teachers.


Organising Our Future

4th/5th March 2016, The Old Ship Hotel, Brighton BN1 1NR

This year’s Regional Young Teachers’ Conference will focus on the education system we want to see and how we can get there. Speakers will include education journalist Melissa Benn, Labour MP Clive Lewis and NUT President Philipa Harvey. This is an opportunity to meet up with others, socialise and discuss the key issues affecting young teachers.  It is always a popular event and places fill up quite quickly.

National Young Teachers Conference

In the summer term, the NUT will be holding its national Young Teachers Conference in Stoke Rochford Hall, the Union’s National Training Centre in Lincolnshire. National Young Teachers’ Conference includes a range of policy and CPD related workshops as well as plenary sessions and socials. It is a great opportunity to meet other young teachers from across the country, participate in workshops, and get more involved in the running of your Union.

As a parent of two children at schools in Oxford, I am fully supportive of NUT campaigns.  Teachers work so hard to deliver high quality education to our children and I am very clear that good education is a right, not a privilege. – Tracy Walsh, parent.
The NUT in Oxfordshire has been at the forefront in drawing attention to the threats our children face if education reforms continue to favour the privileged few. Every child should have access to a qualified teacher, and a school which champions the interests of every child, irrespective of postcode, parentage or perceived academic potential. – Chris Davis, parent.
