Membership of the National Union of Teachers is open to all qualified teachers, whether or not presently employed as teachers. Full membership provides professional, representational, legal and financial/commercial services to those employed in schools, units, colleges and other fields of Education, including administration, inspection and advice. Students/Trainees undertaking a course of Initial Teacher Training, including via the Graduate Teacher Training Scheme, are entitled to free membership and services. Teachers qualifying through Graduate Teacher Training / Overseas teachers routes can also be full members of the NUT free of any subscription.  Unqualified teachers may not become members, except those undergoing an approved course leading to qualified status or teachers from abroad whose qualifications may be recognised by the NUT.

NUT Subscriptions are Tax-Deductable

You can claim arrears for five years.

How to claim: (a) If you are filling in a tax return, claim for NUT Subscriptions under "Expenses, Subscriptions to professional bodies". Make sure that the figure is then included in the "Expenses" column of your Tax Coding notification.

(b) If you do not fill in a tax form in any tax year, you should ask for a form P810(T). This enables you to tell the Inland Revenue how much you paid to the NUT in the previous tax year. They will then adjust your tax coding and send you a new notification.
