Our branches are the lifeblood of our movement. We have more than 170 branches across England, Wales and Northern Ireland that support our thriving professional community of school leaders.
They are the first point of contact for our members who wish to find out more about our campaigns and initiatives that are happening in the local area.
They provide our members with expert advice and guidance on employment matters and opportunities to network and learn from like-minded colleagues.
They ensure the voices of school leaders, their concerns and interests are heard and raised locally with the local authority or MAT employers. And they feed issues back to us at a regional or national level.
By working together, our members can lead effective campaigns through their branch on the big issues in education.
