The AEU is dedicated to making TAFE and its highly skilled teaching workforce the centre of vocational education and training in Australia.
The AEU has a long and proud history of representing Victorian TAFE teachers in standalone TAFEs and in dual sector universities. The Victorian branch of the AEU was officially founded in 1995, but we have been representing teachers’ interests since 1884 with the formation of the Victorian Lady Teachers Association.
Recent major achievements include:
There are more campaigns and victories to be won – so get on board and lend your voice to the growing power of your union.
The AEU is the peak representative body for Victorian teachers. We have decades of experience and expertise negotiating better outcomes for teachers and their students.
DUAL SECTOR AGREEMENTS AND IMPLEMENTATION GUIDES
Join the campaign - Put TAFE Education First
TAFEs deliver high-quality education – they’re trusted by industry professionals and the community to educate the skilled workers Victoria needs. The Andrews government has reinvested significantly, but the TAFE system needs more support and investment to ensure it can again become the pre-eminent provider of vocational education.
The AEU is campaigning for contestable VET funding to be capped at a maximum 30% of total funding, with the remainding 70% dedicated to public provision through TAFEs.
Join Put Education First - and urge the state government to commit 70% of public funding to our public TAFE system.
