The future of education can significantly influence voter decisions in the upcoming General Election on 4 July 2024.


The Ulster Teachers’ Union (UTU), National Education Union (NEU), and Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO) believe it is time to move past political stalemates and divisions on education and start listening to those who truly understand the issues – the teachers, school leaders and education staff working in schools.


Education must be well resourced, with fully qualified teachers and educational staff who are appropriately paid and supported to deliver life-changing learning to our young people.

We urge everyone – parents, grandparents and anyone with an interest in education or the future of our community – to join the UTU, NEU and INTO in sending a clear message to all political parties. Each child matters and each vote counts.
