Student Associate Membership

Student Associate Membership

We’re here to help you become
the best Teacher that you can be!


Student Associate Membership is for students undertaking pre-service tertiary education courses ahead of gaining employment as a registered teacher.

The one-off $50 joining fee covers the Student Associate Member for the duration of their course and ceases upon graduation or employment or cancellation.








As a Student Associate Member, IEU (SA) will support you through your pre-service years with benefits normally available only to financial members.

  • Curriculum Organiser’s 10,000 resources, lesson plans and general classroom materials aligned to the Australian Curriculum
  • TLN online professional learning courses
  • Exclusive discount on an Edufolios subscription
  • Great discounts/deals with Union Shopper
  • Advice about school agreements and conditions (Associate membership will not cover you for industrial matters).
  • Assistance with CV and application writing
  • School Tours

You can also listen to our Preservice Teacher coordinator, Tim Oosterbaan, discuss IEU membership for an Edufolios podcast to new teachers:


There is a graduated fee pathway from Student Associate Membership to full IEU(SA) financial membership upon completion of your course. For your first year of teaching a discount of approximately 50% will be applied to your union fees.

If you are employed as a teacher you are not eligible for Student Associate Membership and the appropriate membership category applies.

Join today! Complete the form and enjoy the benefits of membership!
