Additional Qualifications – Teachers
Teachers are entitled to advance up the incremental scale by one subdivision if they have successfully completed a qualification of a Masters degree (or its equivalent) or higher. The qualification must be attained according to standards adopted and approved by Australian tertiary institutions and must be equivalent to at least one year of full time study.
Incremental advancement will occur on 1 May following the date on which the extra qualification was attained, or upon commencement of a new contract for fixed term staff if the qualification was attained after 1 May. Incremental advancement shall not pre-date the date of notification.
Teachers are required to notify their employer in writing of the acquisition of an additional qualification, and provide satisfactory evidence to this effect.
Accelerated Advancement – Teachers
Teachers may be considered for accelerated advancement through the incremental scale. Advancement procedures are determined by the employer, and will only be applicable during their employment with the employer who determines the procedures.
