IAPS members can potentially benefit from membership of a union. IAPS recommends you are a member of a union which supports headteachers in their professional role. This is not compulsory to gain or retain membership of IAPS.

It is a matter personal choice for headteachers which union you may wish to be part of, and as such, we would advise researching what each organisation offers its members and which organisation may best suit your current position.

The two main unions in operation are;

ASCL - Association of School and College Leaders

ASCL website or call 0116 299 1122 to speak to an advisor

NAHT - National Association of Head Teachers

NAHT website , or call 0300 303 0333 to speak to an advisor

Members of IAPS are offered a discounted rate for the NAHT on an annual ongoing basis (as detailed in the subscriptions information).
