Always Here..for you

About Us

“We are there for you for your entire career as a teacher…. With advice and guidance whenever you need us ….. we are a community of like-minded individuals made strong by our unity..” Alan Hackett


Who We Are

The L28 Leicestershire Local Association is a vibrant and committed collection of individuals who are dedicated to the protection of Leicestershire teachers’ right and to the collective advancement of NASUWT aims. We are comprised of an Executive Committee who meets to support the needs and encourage the activism of local teachers, and is led by President Luke Akhurst, who chairs our meetings, assisted by Vice President Claire Gee.

We have also recently welcomed our new Social Secretary Alice McKenna who has been responsible, alongside local representatives, for building the events calendar for the Local Association, ably assisted by Treasurer Oliver Swain. Furthermore, our Equalities Officer, Tamara, provides essential support to members who are under-represented in the workplace, and promotes and organises the cause of equal opportunities within the association.

What We Do

Our role is to ensure that members are as informed, supported and engaged with the work (and play!) of the NASUWT in Leicestershire to the fullest extent. We can provide a point of contact for members seeking advice, thanks to an approachable and knowledgeable network of experienced School Representatives. We are also keen to foster links between the members across the county, through social and activist events, details of which you will find on this website.

Our representation at Annual Conference is a highlight of the year, where we represent motions overseen by the Executive Committee. We are always looking to further involve members in the running of the L28 Leicestershire Local Association, so please get in touch if you think this could be you.

NASUWT - Together

Just for You!
