The Australian Education Union wants the state government to fund another professional development day per term for Victorian teachers.

Meredith Peace, Australian Education Union Victorian Branch President, says it would allow teachers to be released from their normal duties and undertake working such as planning and personal development.

“Teachers are doing 15 hours of unpaid overtime every week, on average,” she told 3AW Drive.

“That’s not sustainable.”
