Student Associate Membership

Student Associate Membership

SAM 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 SAM for the remainder of the duration of their course and ceases upon graduation or employment or cancellation.

The IEU(SA) Student Associate membership entitles you to access to current member benefit such as Curriculum Organiser and TLN’s professional learning courses. Membership will also allow you access to advice on school agreements and conditions and help with CV and application writing. SAM does not entitle you to industrial or legal support, nor to participate in the running of the union as a financial member under the rules.

There is a graduated fee pathway from SAM 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 SAM and the appropriate membership category should be arranged instead.
