When you join the SEA, you become part of a historic movement to improve education provision in this country.

As a student or teacher in training, you’ll be at the forefront of shaping education policy both within the Labour Party and nationally. 

Not only are you joining an incredible community of educators and thinkers,
you’ll also be able to:

Take action on our campaigns

Our Give Back Our Schools campaign aims to restore democratic control over our schools and rebuild links with their local communities, by resisting academisation.

Receive an annual journal and any other publications

Education Politics features writing from teachers and thinkers on education policy on a range of topics, from adding climate change to the curriculum to reflections on Ofsted.

Influence Labour Party policies on education

We give you the information you need to submit motions to your local SEA or Labour party branch about proposals that will shape the Labour Party’s policies on education.

Attend SEA events

You’re invited to join free and regular events. From our annual memorial lecture in honour of the late socialist education campaigner Caroline Benn, to film screenings of documentaries to our general meeting, where we discuss and deliberate our radical vision for education.

Read and contribute to our fortnightly blog

Our blogs cover all things education, from socially just schooling to an approach to assessment and accountability that is genuinely in the best interests of learners.
