While most teachers would have an affiliation with a union, many also have links with one or more professional associations. These may range from curriculum areas to leadership, technology to non-government school groups. These provide support, discussion forums, sharing of skills and knowledge, professional development and also contribute to more effective curriculum implementation, teaching, learning and leadership/administration.

This page looks at associations and groups for learning and curriculum areas at both state/territory and national level.
