Research & policy

Here’s where you will find all of AEU Victoria’s research, submissions, policy positions and branch council resolutions.

AEU Victoria has a dedicated team of experienced researchers who draft submissions to inquiries, reviews and consultations. They also regularly conduct surveys and research into the views and professional experiences of its members across all sectors.

The AEU’s annual State of Our Schools survey, for example, is among the most comprehensive surveys of school leaders conducted in the state, generating important media about the needs and interests of Victoria’s public schools.

AEU Victorian Branch Council passes regular resolutions on a range of educational, industrial and broader political issues of particular concern to members.

Council resolutions and results from the AEU’s most recent research are also posted here. Academics and others who wish to access earlier results for longitudinal research purposes should contact the AEU research unit at
