Who we are
We like our students. We like our jobs. We like our workmates. We don’t like struggling to pay the bills. We don’t like insecure employment. We don’t like being treated like we’re disposable.
No matter your job, if you work in a language school and you have problem – big or small – the IWW is here to help.
We offer legal advice and training but, most importantly, we are here to help language workers support one another.
Together we can change the UK’s language schools: decent contracts, better pay, an independent voice on the job.
Get involved today.
