School Services Officers 

In each school all staff, including principals, teachers, School Services Officers, Aboriginal Education Workers, and groundspersons, work together as a team to provide high quality education for students.

As a team, teachers and SSOs share common interests in secure jobs, career development and salary justice. These interests are best protected and improved by the AEU, which works exclusively in the education profession. Membership of the AEU also enables you to share in the democratic decision-making processes at your site.

SSO Consultative Committee

The SSO Consultative Committee is a group of nine SSOs elected annually. The Committee provides information and advice to AEU Branch Executive on matters that affect SSOs.

The Committee is representative of SSOs who work in country, metropolitan, primary, secondary, area, and special schools.
