Join to make a difference

We’re educators because we want to make a difference in the lives of young people in our community. Our union makes sure that the great work we do in our classrooms and schools is supported by Government policies. Through our ‘I Give a Gonksi’ school funding campaign, we won $200 million new funding for ACT schools. This funding will be especially targeted to students who need it most: students with disabilities; students from poor families; Indigenous students; students from non-English speaking backgrounds; and students from rural and remote backgrounds. 

Through our association with APHEDA Union Aid Abroad, we seek to make a difference in the lives of young people all over the world. Join now! School Teacher Application | School Assistant ApplicationCIT Application | School Psychologist Application

Join to make your voice count

Our union is run by members for members. We all have a say – in the sub-branch at our sites and through our representatives on AEU ACT Council. 

In turn, our union represents the voice of teachers throughout the community. On a regular basis, our union officers meet with the Minister for Education and senior bureaucrats in the Education and Training Directorate to make sure they understand the issues educators are facing in classrooms. 

We also regularly make comment, write articles and run ads in the media to make sure the community understands the perspective of ACT educators and the needs of our students. Through our annual Public Education Week and similar activities, we advance the cause of public education in our community. Join now!

Join for advice and support

Our union is here to provide information, advice and support as you progress through your career. Your sub-branch leaders and your organisers will assist you if you have concerns around probationary processes and contract assessments as well as through the transfer round. Whether it’s a question about your salary, leave or other entitlements or about a workplace dispute or an Occupational Health and Safety issue, we’re here for you. When we need to, Union Officers will take up relevant matters with the Education and Training Directorate or the Canberra Institute of Technology. We also support members who face allegations by students, parents and colleagues to ensure you are treated fairly. Join now!
