School Officer Day 2019: Careers You Can Count On

Topics : School Officers

On Wednesday 12 June, members across Queensland and the Northern Territory will mark School Officer Day by recognising and celebrating how our school officers and services staff support quality education. School_officer_day_web_logo.png

Sadly, the reality for many school officers and support staff is one of insecure employment an a lack of access to the quality professional development needed to build their careers. 

This year’s theme Careers You Can Count On is about using our collective voice to fight back and demand the secure careers that school officers and support staff deserve. 

IEUA-QNT Branch Secretary Terry Burke said that the annual celebration of School Officer Day gives visibility and recognition to the critical role of school officers and services staff in the delivery quality education while also acknowledging the particular professional issues they face. 

“A part of our union, school officers and services staff continue to face inconsistent pay, casualisation, a lack of professional development and recognition,” Mr Burke said. 

IEUA-QNT Chapters are encouraged to celebrate School Officer Day by holding a School Officer Day morning tea and encouraging all school officers and services staff who have not yet joined our union to do so. 

Chapter Reps will receive materials to help celebrate School Officer Day. 

Chapters are also asked to share photographs of their School Officer Day celebrations by emailing high resolution images to communications@qieu.asn.au for inclusion in our union’s publications and online. 

Any photos posted to social media on the day should be tagged @IEUAQNT 

You can encourage your colleagues to join online via our website: www.qieu.asn.au/join
