The Australian Education Union (AEU) Victoria has continued its support of the Victorian Teachers’ Games (VTG), extending its long affiliation with an event that brings together thousands of teachers across the state.

The AEU is the voice of public education in Victoria, representing nearly 50,000 teachers, principals and support staff working in public schools, early childhood centres, TAFEs and adult disability settings.

Members stick together to support one another in the workplace, win better pay and conditions, and advocate for an equitable public education system.

AEU Victoria will be on-site at VTG Central (Steampacket Gardens) throughout the opening two days of VTG25 and will have a presence at several other key events across the City of Greater Geelong. Members and non-members are encouraged to visit, meet the friendly team, and pick up some merchandise.

AEU Victoria has been a committed partner to the VTG event for the best part of three decades, including its contribution to the 1996 event – the first ever instalment of the Games. With the event celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021, VTG are thrilled to have AEU Victoria continue its support and celebrate the occasion with one of its foundation partners.

“Having supported VTG since its inception, we’re grateful that AEU Victoria are returning to support teachers through partnering with our event”, Victorian Teachers’ Games Manager, Pieter van Pinxteren said.

“To have an organisation like AEU Victoria – whose values embody a shared vision of unity – continue their support of our event showcases their strong commitment to the development of health and wellbeing of our teachers at the VTG”.

“We are proud to support the Victorian Teachers’ Games, which brings teachers together from all parts of the state and we look forward to celebrating the 25th anniversary with everyone involved.
