Scotland's only specialist union for Secondary Teachers


We believe that it is essential that the views of secondary teachers are firmly represented. Secondary teaching is not simply more specialised primary teaching.

Founded in 1944, the Scottish Secondary Teachers’ Association is Scotland’s only specialist union for Secondary Teachers. If you wish your views as a secondary teacher to be fully represented, there is only one union you can join.
