As a teacher, you work hard to offer the best learning opportunities to the children in your classroom. We know that can be challenging, which is why we like to promote to our staff some of the benefits schemes which are available exclusively for teachers.

Join a Teaching Union

Teachers can join any of the following unions. These may have benefits and offers available to new and existing members, including home and car insurance packages, utilities rates and mortgage advice.

In the UK the main teaching unions are:

Teachers Building Society

TBS was formed to meet the specific needs of teachers and is a recommended mortgage supplier of the NUT. They offer mortgages, savings and financial services. For more information please visit or call free on 0800 378 669.

The Teacher Support Network

The Teacher Support Network is an independent charity dedicated to improving the wellbeing and effectiveness of training, serving and retired teachers.

Through coaching, counselling, money advice and financial support, both online and via a telephone helpline, the charity helps thousands of teachers tackle personal and work-related issues each year.
