About us

Educators SA also known as CEASA is a community of 15,000 educators who are members of one of our 58 educator professional associations. Collectively we speak as the voice of educators in South Australia!

Formed in 1994 as the Council of Education Associations of South Australia (CEASA), Educators SA and its members represent the views of educators from all aspects of the profession, from all sectors, from all levels of care and schooling and who collectively provide thousands of hours of professional learning to colleagues each year.

Educators SA is managed by a member elected Board and is guided by a Council of delegates from each member association. The aim is for every member to have a say and contribute to Educators SA. We advocate for the profession at a government and sector level, provide professional learning to member presidents and committees and provide a range of services to members and to the public including being the largest provider of Responding to Abuse and Neglect training.

Educators SA is a registered charity and incorporated association; we are committed to enabling all educators in South Australia to associate professionally both online and through association communities.
