The Australian Professional Teachers Association (APTA) is a federation of state and territory joint councils of teacher professional associations representing over 160 000 teachers, from government and non-government schools within Australia.
Our work provides value to the community, ensuring ongoing support for the profession while developing quality teaching and leadership. Each of these councils represents its professional education member associations. All of these associations are managed and maintained by professional educators. The APTA provides a national voice for Australian teachers from all sectors and all levels of education.
We invite you to download a factsheet that explains our association in more detail. This factsheet also discusses how teaching associations are represented nationally and in each state and Territory.
