The AEU: the union for you
When you’re in the AEU, you’re also part of a vibrant, diverse community of fellow educators. The New Educator Network (NEN) is a community network run specifically for student and graduate members.
NEN runs social events for AEU members who are at a similar stage in their careers and provides opportunities for you to meet others, get involved in the union, help create policy and become active in key campaigns that will affect your working life and your students.
Every AEU student member is automatically joined up to NEN. Join us online at our NEN Facebook page.
Graduate teachers and the AEU
All public school teachers are covered by the Victorian Government Schools Agreement 2017. The AEU is the union for early childhood teachers, co-educators, preschool field officers (PSFOs), and advisors.
We understand that graduate teachers face specific challenges at work, and we’ve achieved some significant outcomes for grads over the years, including:
- a 5% reduction in workload for all full-time graduates in their first year
- access to a laptop for work use at no cost to the teacher
- a mentor for all graduates working full-time in their first year.
These accomplishments were not won easily and couldn’t have happened without the collective strength of our members.
