AEU Reps training

This year, the AEU is providing a new one-day Reps Training course for members who are undertaking the important role of Sub-Branch Rep in schools. This training is open to members who have taken on the role of Sub-Branch Rep, President, Secretary, Treasurer, ES Rep, WOW or Consultative Committee Rep.

The training provides AEU reps with a fantastic opportunity to meet other AEU reps, explore the key entitlements of the VGSA, develop an understanding of the bargaining process, and is designed to support AEU reps to feel confident about growing and supporting their sub-branch.   

To give our reps the best opportunity to attend, this training will be offered online, at the AEU Abbotsford building, and in a variety of outer metro and regional locations.    

Schools members have access to trade union training leave which allows teachers and ES to attend up to five days of union training in any one year (or 10 days over two years). The AEU also offers teacher/ES replacement costs where your workplace has employed a replacement (Casual Relief Teacher, Educator or ES casual) for you for the training period. In addition to registering for the AEU training, you will also need to undertake your workplace's internal professional development approval process.

Additional education support training options

Although education support staff share many common entitlements with their teacher and principal colleagues, there has a been a vast number of changes and improvements to education support entitlements. Join us as we break the complexities down and take a deep-dive into understanding ES entitlements.

These training sessions are designed to build on the knowledge of principals, consultative committee reps and sub-branch reps who may be teachers or education support AEU members.

Early childhood training
