The National Union of Teachers is the largest teachers' union and the only union that represents only qualified teachers, or those who are on courses or in posts that will lead to teacher qualification. The NUT campaigns consistently for professional unity in the teaching profession. We believe that a single professional body, articulating the views of the profession, would benefit both children and teachers.
Teaching is a challenging and important job. Teachers can change children's lives. The hallmark of the NUT has been a commitment to high-quality education for all children.
Crucial to the full and enriched development of our children and young people is the opportunity to enjoy and make music. The National Union of Teachers is honoured to be a major sponsor of Music for Youth.

We believe that teachers around the world are the single most important influence on a child's education. We also believe that those teachers want access to the very best content and resources possible to inspire their students. By pooling the vast knowledge, experience and creativity of teachers around the world, and by giving them the ability to share the very best lesson content, we believe that the education system can be transformed for the better.

Creative Scotland is the national development agency for the arts, screen and creative industries. Our ambition is to see Scotland recognised as a leading creative nation – one that attracts, develops and retains talent, where the arts and the creative industries are supported and celebrated and their economic contribution fully captured, a nation where the arts and creativity play a central part in the lives, education and wellbeing of our population.
We're investing in the potential and talent of Scotland's young people through a wide range of projects and initiatives – from helping thousands of young people play music through the Scottish Government's Youth Music Initiative, to our Creative Identities programme which supports projects in film, dance and independent music for young people. We provide ongoing support for the work of the national youth arts companies, and we're currently working with young people and arts organisations to develop Scotland's first National Youth Arts Strategy. Longer term we're also leading on the creation of an exciting new National Youth Arts Centre – a hub that will link up a network of youth arts organisations and facilities across the country.
