The Council of Education Associations of South Australia Incorporated (CEASA) was formed in 1994 as an independent peak body to represent professional teacher associations in their pursuit of quality education. This represented a new era in the organisation and role of teacher professional associations in South Australia. Prior to the formation of CEASA, South Australian education professional associations had no mechanism for information sharing or collaboration.
CEASA (through the President, Executive Director and/or association representation) has had, or currently has, representation on committees and working groups, including:
Department of Education and Child Development (DECD) funding was secured to provide member associations with training and development grants for projects in the priority areas of the then curriculum 'statements and profiles', and work-related studies. CEASA acknowledges the ongoing support from DECD that has continued since 1994.
