Your QASEL membership also includes membership to the Australian Special Education Principals Association (ASEPA).

Established in 1998, ASEPA is the peak national organisation representing school based special education principals and leaders in Australia. ASEPA parallels similar peak bodies such as the Australian Primary Principals Association and the Australian Secondary Principals Association. The unique patterns of education service delivery to students with disabilities and special educational needs requires ASEPA to represent special education leaders across all sectors of schooling including early intervention, primary and secondary. Each state and territory are represented. ASEPA is QASEL’s national body and is represented through QASEL membership at the Board and National Council level.


Check out the ASEPA website for more information.
