The Council of ACT Education Associations (COACTEA) was formed in 1997 and currently comprises member professional associations representing teachers and educators across all sectors. COACTEA is a member of the Australian Professional Teachers Association (APTA). Please visit: http://www.apta.edu.au/ Through its membership, COACTEA aims to develop a strong educational community.
The major objectives of COACTEA are:
to represent member associations collectively in initiating and responding to communication with government, employers, tertiary institutions and other organisations where appropriate;
to allow for an expression of a common voice on educational matters in the interests of member associations;
to enhance the public profile of member associations and hence the contribution they make to education;
to promote and support activities that assist and develop the members of affiliates in the practice of their profession;
to facilitate networking, communication and sharing of resources between member associations;
to liaise with other bodies on matters of mutual interest to its member associations; and
to encourage professional associations to join as member associations.
