New Educators Conference attendee Prue Fabian told us what she gained from this year's event. If you're eligible to come along next year, make a note in your diary now!
If you are a new educator, you will no doubt have felt at some point that you are drowning in marking and lesson planning. If you're anything like me, you're probably consuming way more than the daily recommended amount of coffee to counterbalance your lack of sleep.
If you have experienced this, I would highly recommend that you attend the next AEU New Educators Conference. It is a wonderful opportunity to network and meet new people - people who understand what it’s like to be a new educator.
The conference is a new teacher’s survival guide. Experts and experienced teachers share advice and tips in a range of sessions designed to help you get through the first few years of your teaching career.
You'll learn ways to ensure you care for yourself and avoid burnout and how to protect yourself from occupational violence.
The union's Industrial Team will also help you to understand your rights and entitlements as a classroom teacher. There are so many protections in place designed to look out for us that as new educators we may not be aware of.
Importantly, it's also a great chance to find out more about the AEU, what they do, and how you can be involved.
This conference’s sole goal is to help you survive and succeed as a teacher, so don’t miss your opportunity to gain some great advice from those who have been there before.
