Modern Awards In 2010, the Modern Awards replaced the old distinctions with online and reduced conditions. Modern prices are not as comprehensive as ancient distinctions, and although some conditions have been maintained, some have inevitably been lost. If your school does not have a collective agreement for you, your framework conditions will be set by the Modern Award. These are well below industry standards and are only a bare minimum, designed solely as a “safety net” to prevent exploitation. For more information, see the following links. Many schools have entered into collective agreements by negotiating with the IEU. This is the first place where you should determine your terms of employment. Below is a link to a list of company agreements: a company agreement is the safest and most effective way to improve employment conditions in your workplace. If your school has such an agreement, it is legally binding.

Your contract is a legally binding document that outlines many of your terms and conditions of employment, including your rate of pay. If you have been offered a fixed-term contract, it is particularly important that you go to your union to find out about your rights. In Victorian Catholic schools, primary school teachers can be assigned a maximum of 21 hours per week in the first year, and for secondary school teachers, the maximum is 18 hours per week in the first year. As a result, some students do not receive a formal learning program and staff and students may need to work and learn how to put their mental and physical safety at risk. This is no more obvious than in special schools and colleges. Have you provided your employer with a copy of your VIT registration number? Remember that you cannot teach in a Victorian primary, secondary or special school unless you have a VIT registration (or teaching permission). Most applications are processed by VIT in January and February, so you`re ready to teach at the beginning of the school year. If you have not received your card before the start of the courses and your application has been successful, you may be able to access your VIT registration number in the VIT register: As an employee of an independent school, your terms of employment can be determined by certain documents read together. . .
