The Anna Stewart Program

The Anna Stewart Officer Program gives you the chance to see what it's like inside the AEU officer.

Each year the AEU ACT Branch invites our woman AEU members to step out of their school or workplace and participate in a work-shadowing program in our AEU office. We invite applications from women members who are interested in doing the program from October 20 - 25 (Term 4, Week 2)

The Anna Stewart Program seeks to give AEU women members a better understanding of the structure and operation of the AEU. Anne Stewart Officers are encouraged to pursue a range of activities over the period of one week, which could include:

  • shadowing union officers in their day to day work
  • assisting with union activities, campaigns and policy development
  • attending meetings with ETD
  • attending school/sub-branch/Executive/Council/Unions ACT meetings
  • writing journal articles
  • researching issues of concern to women
  • conducting a project that would benefit women

Will you be paid?

Yes! Our Enterprise Agreements enable AEU members to access up to 15 days Industrial Leave per year to engage in AEU training. If you are permanent, permanent part time or working in a temporary position then the Education & Training Directorate or TAFE will continue to pay you and the AEU will pay the costs of casual relief. If you are working as a day-to-day casual relief teachers then the AEU will pay for any work that you were booked to do but were unable to take up due to your participation in this program.

Please contact Sue on 6272 7900 or for more details.
