Catholic Teacher Classification Review
The latest Queensland Catholic Schools Collective Agreement provides for the establishment and functioning of a Teacher Classification Review Joint Working Party (JWP).
This JWP is tasked specifically to:
- review and negotiate (where necessary) on the current teacher classification structure and operational provisions with reference to the AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teachers; and
- negotiate structures and operational provisions for Highly Accomplished Teacher (HAT) and Lead Teacher (LT) with reference to the AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
The JWP has a wide ranging terms of reference. Because of the negotiating nature and wide terms of reference this JWP has the potential to appropriately structure and acknowledge the full gamut of teachers in Catholic schools in Queensland.
Read latest updates from the JWP in the Chapter Briefings below.
Campaign for Middle Leader recognition hits the radio
Members in Queensland Catholic schools are committed to bringing a just and proper resolution to the middle (and senior) leader wage rates under consideration by the current Teacher Classification Review Joint Working Party.
As part of this commitment, Chapters endorsed the placement of radio advertisements in major centres during breakfast and drive timeslots.
The advertisement aired on 18 & 19 October sharing the important message with the broader public that Middle Leaders are both teachers and leaders within our school communities and need to be adequately recognised in these important roles.
