The National Association of Teachers of Travellers + Other Professionals
The Association was established in 1980 in order to address the isolation of teachers of Travellers and to support and encourage their work. It was renamed in 2008 to recognise that there were other professionals needing support who were involved in the education of Gypsy, Roma and Travellers.
NATT+ is the nationally recognised voice of Traveller Education Services. It represents and supports members at a national level by addressing Gypsy, Roma and Traveller issues with a number of organisations including the DCSF and other government departments.
It also provides a platform for teachers of Travellers and other professionals involved in the education of Gypsy Roma and Travellers, to share good practice and resources and promote these through its activities. There is also the opportunity for members to participate in innovative and pioneering programmes of work aimed at raising the achievement, attainment and addressing the social exclusion of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils.
