Please note that if you are currently employed on a part-time temporary engagement and are working day-to-day casual on the other days of the week, you will only be required to pay the part-time temporary fees but you will be automatically covered for all the work you carry out as a casual teacher in NSW public schools.

If you are currently appointed part-time permanent and work part-time temporarily on other days of the week, please contact the membership section to be advised of a combined rate that will ensure you are fully protected.

Please remember your Federation fees do not cover any work you may do as a teacher in a non-government school.
