Welcome to the NASWE Website...

We are currently developing our new website, which is planned to go live in December 2014.

The voice of all those working to promote school attendance and social inclusion in education

NASWE is the only professional association representing the views of those employed in a professional or voluntary capacity to support the education, attendance and welfare of children and young people, in the education system. This includes those employed by local authorities, schools, academies, voluntary sector organisations and the private sector. NASWE is seeking to broaden, strengthen and diversify its membership.
