Need advice or support? Call us

We are standing by to answer questions about your agreement, health and safety, disciplinary issues and complaints, leave entitlements, contract and casual work, superannuation and retirement, and much more. Find out more about our Member Support Centre.

We’re here to help when disaster strikes. If you’ve been affected by flood or fire, please read about our disaster relief and welfare fund to see if you’re eligible for emergency financial assistance.

Let us represent you

  • Professionally: if you have any problems at work, we’ll go in to bat for you with your management or employer.
  • Legally: we provide free, comprehensive legal support and representation.
  • Industrially: we have a strong track record of improving pay and conditions for educators.
  • Politically: we win over politicians, policy makers and voters to support public education with our powerful state and federal campaigns like I Give a Gonski and Protect Our Preschools.

Hone your skills

You’re good at what you do, and we know you’re passionate about becoming the best educator you can be. That’s why we offer our members a slate of exciting training and events.
