Supporting the independent education community

Principals

The IEU represents principals and teachers holding comparable positions, such as directors of studies in ELICOS colleges.

The Union conducts regular meetings of principals to ensure we are able to vigorously and accurately represent your views and meet your particular needs.

For any questions regarding the Principals Branch of the Union, contact IEU Principals Branch Organiser Pam Smith via pam@ieu.asn.au.
