IEU the union for teachers

Join today


Teachers are the heart and soul of the education system, and at the Independent Education Union NSW/ACT, we stand firmly by your side.

Through every stage of your career, the IEU is here for you.

The industrial representation the IEU provides ensures you and your colleagues maintain hard-won conditions, receive regular pay rises and continue to make gains for your profession. For any individual workplace issue, as long as you are already a member at the time the issue arises, we are just a phone call away.  

We recognise the pivotal role teachers play in shaping the future. Our members are passionate and committed professionals who inspire, educate, and nurture the next generation.

We work tirelessly to ensure teachers have the support, resources, and fair working conditions to excel in their vital roles. Together, we strive to create a vibrant and inclusive educational community, empowering teachers to make a lasting impact on the lives of their students.

The IEU also provides a range of practical professional development courses and conferences that are useful throughout your career.

Pre-service teachers may access free membership throughout teacher education degrees, plus we run regular pre-service teacher and accreditation workshops.

At the end of your career, the IEU is still here for you, with access to the Retired Members Association.

Join us in celebrating and supporting the incredible teachers who drive educational excellence in our region.
