NAHT Isle of Man has produced a manifesto for education for General Election 2021 which sets out four key priorities:
- Meeting the needs of all children
- Recruitment and retention of education staff
We urge all prospective candidates to place these at the heart of everything they do if elected to the House of Keys.
The manifesto can be read in full here.
Pledge for education
We are also calling on all candidates to sign up to our pledge for education:
‘I pledge to work with the profession, listening to and acting on the views of school leaders as the experts in education in the best interests of all learners. I commit to working with the Isle of Man NAHT on their manifesto for education.’
To sign up for the pledge, please share this image on social media with the hashtag #NAHTIOMPledge.
If you have any queries, please contact NAHT Isle of Man branch secretary, Max Kelly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Isle of Man NAHT has organised a series of hustings events focused on education. It is an opportunity for school staff, parents, governors and anyone else interested in the future of education on the island to hear from the candidates.
All candidates in the constituencies have been invited to attend, and there will be an opportunity for you to ask them questions around education and schools.
Please register via the links below and share with colleagues and friends - all welcome to attend.
