Membership fees

AEU membership fees or subscription rates are determined each year by Branch Council, with criteria set by Annual Conference. You can download a rates sheet and check the direct debit payment dates below.

Union fees differ depending on membership category and time fraction. They also recognise that beginning teachers have a lot of expenses, so the cost to be a member is lower for the first three years of teaching (if members pay by direct debit).
