AEU leaders include principals and deputy principals working in a range of primary and secondary settings.
School leaders work as teams in implementing DECD priorities and providing high quality educational opportunities for the students who attend their schools.
Increasingly over the past two decades, devolution of responsibility and authority to the local level has changed the roles of school leaders. However, the AEU (SA) insists that the undeniable central role of all school leaders is to be an educational leader in their site.
Currently, around 80% of South Australian school leaders are members of the AEU.
The Principals Consultative Committee of the AEU, elected annually, represents the interests of these members and is made up of both metropolitan and country-located leaders. The PCC provides information and advice to AEU (SA) Branch Executive on matters which affect the classifications, salaries and conditions of school leaders. In addition, this group advises on PD and T&D opportunities and needs for these members.
