educating the youth of South Africa

Welcome to NAPTOSA,
Gauteng Province

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world

Second largest union in the education sector

NAPTOSA, the second largest union in the education sector, was registered by the Registrar of Labour Relations as the Trade Union on 1 November 2006. Furthermore,

NAPTOSA enjoys all the rights of a trade union and operates within the National ELRC under the name of the Combined Trade Unions (CTU), called CTU – ATU. The Provincial Autonomous Teachers’ Unions (ATU) consist of NAPTOSA (the corresponding party), NATU, PEU, PSA and SAOU.

NAPTOSA is the only education sector union that is truly representative of the demographics of South Africa. Its strength lies in the diverse backgrounds of its members, bound by a common commitment to professionalism and to educating the youth of South Africa.
