IE November 2023

Welcome to the final edition of IE for 2023.

What did teachers have to do with the Penrith Panthers historic third premiership win in the National Rugby League last month? Quite a lot as it turns out. Find out more in our feature story.

Teachers and support staff are often the first line of defence when children have a learning difficulty. We explore how to recognise and deal with these issues, and how the IEU is calling for more support in the classroom.

In our regular series, ‘A Day in the Life’, we focus on the diverse roles that are crucial to the smooth running of our schools. In this issue we look at teachers aides.

As well as advocating for better wages and conditions, your union lobbies the regulatory bodies that influence your lives, particularly about workload. Find out what we’re doing right now.

We explore new research that shows how the pandemic experience has provided an opportunity to engage students in history.

We encourage you to share this email with your colleagues and invite them to join the IEU.
