Aspiring & Beginning Educators
If you are an aspiring educator studying at university or a beginning educator, union membership can help you to achieve your goals.
Being a member of our union means you have the benefits of collectively negotiating fair and equitable working conditions.
Membership also gives you access to publications written especially for your sector that include news and helpful advice.
Members who are aspiring educators or teachers in their first five years also receive the benefits of our Beginning Educators Network (BEnet).
What is BEnet?
BEnet is a dedicated network that ensures aspiring and early-career educators receive all the support they need.
The network offers tailored training and professional development on the issues like teacher registration and hours of duty that affect beginning educators as they carve out their career pathway.
BEnet is also a chance to meet fellow beginning educators and build a network of colleagues and friends.
Your source of information and support
As a student or beginning educator member you will receive our regular BEnet e-newsletter, which provides tailored news and advice to support you in your teaching journey. The newsletter is sent via email twice per school term.
