About us

We are the voice of public education in Victoria. We represent and advocate for all teachers, principals and support staff working in government schools, early childhood, TAFE, disability and adult education.

We believe our members transform lives every day – and that providing equitable access to high-quality public education is the key to Australia’s future.

As the Victorian branch of the Australian Education Union, we are proud to represent more than 50,000 members. Nationally the AEU is 185,000 strong.

We support our members throughout their careers in education, providing one-on-one advice and legal assistance, relevant news and information, and highly sought-after training and mentorship opportunities.

On the political front, we win better pay and conditions for educators, advocate for proper government funding, and run high-level campaigns across all our sectors to bring about a fairer, more equitable society for the next generation of Australians.
