Welsh teachers have packed a conference hall in Cardiff to speak out over pay and working conditions in the profession.
Speakers from the main teaching unions NASUWT and NUT also said they wanted to 'defend' the education system here, which they claim politicians 'are determined to wreck'.
The Welsh Government says measures have been put in place to raise standards and performance, but added issues concerning pay and conditions are a matter for the UK Government as they are not devolved to Wales.
UK Education Secretary Michael Gove has said he's striving to achieve higher education standards through his policies.
