Employing authorities recognise the value of all employees undertaking professional development relevant to the performance of their work role and duties. As part of a school’s professional development program and consistent with the professional development guidelines, all employees are entitled to apply to undertake relevant professional development activities. Costs and release time involved in attending such professional development shall be covered in accordance with the school’s professional development guidelines. Except where the employing authority sponsors, provides and/or pays for the professional development, the costs shall be met by the individual teaching or nonteaching employee. Where professional development is required by the employing authority for school officers and services staff outside ordinary working time, the employee will be granted time in lieu for the equivalent hours taken at a mutually convenient time or receive payment at ordinary hours. In the context of the school development/renewal plan and consistent with the appraisal process and outcomes the teaching employee shall determine and each year undertake professional development outside of school time and exclusive of pupil free days. 4.2.2 Teachers Each teacher will develop a professional development program in consultation with their supervisor. Such a program may be reviewed annually and shall be linked to the formative appraisal processes as provided for in Clause 5.3 in Schedule 2 – Continuation of Provisions of CA 152, CA163, CA158, CA155, CA162, CA163 and CA165 of 1996 which is detailed in Schedule 6 – Professional Development. 4.2.3 School officers and services staff The employing authority recognises the specific training requirements of school officers and services staff within schools.

Therefore, an organised co-curricular program is provided. 4.3.2 Teachers contribute to the ethos and mission of the college by accepting the performance of cocurricular activities which are an integral part of the total college curriculum. It is the Employing Authority’s view that there may generally be participation by teaching staff in at least two (2) cocurricular activities during each year. 4.3.3 For the purposes of this provision, the Parties agree that Clause 2 (11) of the Teachers’ Award (Non-Governmental) Schools shall be considered as co-curricular activities. 4.3.4 Co-Curricular activities thus defined shall continue to be performed on an honorary and voluntary basis.

4.4

Salary packaging 4.4.1 The employing authority agrees to the implementation of salary packaging for components other than superannuation, from the first full pay period on or after 1 April 2004.

The costs of administration will be borne by the employee in regard to their own package. 4.4.10 Where the employing authority determines that it will internally administer the salary packaging, the costs borne by the employee will be consistent with the costs of administering the elements in the package and will be consistent with that which would be charged by an outsourcer for an equivalent package. 4.4.11 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the costs of administration of salary packaging for the purpose of superannuation only shall be met by the employing authority as outlined in Clauses 7.1 of CA427 of 1999, CA449 of 1999, CA450 of 1999, CA451 of 1999 and CA448 of 1999, and Clause 6.1 of CA426 of 1999.

4.11.4

4.12 Length of school terms The parties agree to support a state-wide implementation of a standard length for the school terms such that the teaching period does not vary by more than one (1) week from a standard four, ten (10) week terms in each school year.

It is also recognised that policies which benefit employee health can improve productivity. Low levels of stress are associated with low levels of staff turnover, absenteeism and low rates of injury. Workplaces that are perceived as healthy are characterised by clear policies and active methods of dealing with people which encourage (a)

respect for the dignity of each person;

(b)

regular feedback and recognition of performance;

Where policies to deal with these issues do not currently exist, they will be developed within the life of this Agreement. Current policies will be reviewed within the life of this Agreement. The parties agree that policies shall be developed or reviewed in consultation with employees and their union. This is to ensure that they are consistent with the principles of natural justice, fairness, and transparency of process. Current policy and guidelines are attached to this Agreement as Schedule 7 – Complaints Against Employees. It is acknowledged that there are established processes to deal with situations where allegations of abuse or sexual misconduct are made against employees, and it is the view of the parties that these processes should be the vehicle for addressing such allegations.

the number of teachers needing to be co-ordinated the number of subjects involved in any area of academic responsibility the curriculum structure of the school e.g. KLAs, Middle School and Senior School, unitized / vertical curriculum the number of students studying subject / KLA the structure of the school e.g. multiple campuses or 8-10, 11-12, 8-12 arrangements school curriculum initiatives other relevant factors.

A ten (10) percent flexibility level is permissible in allocating points to release time per position. For example: A level 4 Co-ordinator has the following allocation: Salary points = 4. Release points = 4. 10 per cent of 4 release points = 0.4 points. If, for example, one point of release time is equivalent to 48 minutes of face to face teaching then 0.4 release points = (0.4 x 48 minutes) = 19.2 minutes. In this example, the range for a 4 point release is (4 x 48 minutes) + 19.2 minutes. This will permit a Level 4 Co-ordinator release time of: either 4 x 50 minute periods or 4 x 45 minute periods or 5 x 40 minute periods.

Attachments Attachment 1 – Review/Appraisal Process Principles

The Principles that shall be applied to the appraisal process will include the following: • Shared Responsibility •

Negotiation

Consultation

Self Review of Performance Based on Role Description and Duty Statements

Validation

Documentation

Confidentiality

Natural Justice

Resourcing

The above Principles are elaborated in the following terms: Shared Responsibility: • •

The responsibility for the appraisal process is shared by the employer (or nominee) and the appraisee. The details of the process will clearly indicate who has the responsibility for each component of the process and how the responsibility will be exercised.

Negotiation: • •

Negotiable aspects should be identified and documented within the broad framework developed by each employing authority/school for its appraisal process. The Principal/Appraisee should be prepared to discuss and agree upon certain aspects within the broad framework of the appraisal process.

Consultation: • •

The Employing Authority / Principal consults collaboratively with the role holder for input and advice. The final decision on the appraisal process rests with the employing authority.

Self Review of Performance Based on Role Description and Duty Statement • • • • • •

The appraisee reflects upon practice within the framework of the Role Description and Duty Statement applicable during the term under review. These documents set and inform the parameters for the format of the self review. The self review may be transmitted in written, oral or some other negotiated form. The self review may be a culmination of on-going documentation of practice. The reflection includes areas of performance that are believed to have been effective and areas of performance that may require further development. It is the performance of the incumbent that is being reviewed. There is no judgement of the person involved.

Validation: • • Documentation:

Within the framework of the process, data related to the role and duty statements will be gathered to validate the self review. The methodology for validation shall form part of the consultation process.


47

The Summative Appraisal generates a written report that is submitted to the Employing Authority/Principal. The report remains the property of the Employing Authority / Principal and the Appraisee.

Confidentiality: •

All materials other than the final report generated in the process shall remain confidential to that process.

Natural Justice: • • • •

The appraisee is advised of the content of information obtained in relation to the appraisee as part of the process. Only information which has been substantiated will form part of the appraisal process. The appraisee has the right to approach the panel to be informed of the content and nature of the information gathered and the identity of those who supplied it. The appraisee is given reasonable opportunity to respond to the matters dealt with in the information. Any person asked to provide information for use in an appraisal process is to be advised, at the time of the request, that such information and the identity of the person providing the information may be made known to the appraisee.

Resourcing: • • •

Provision of appropriate resources for the process will be negotiated between the appraisee, those undertaking a role in the appraisal on the one hand and the employing authority on the other. Those elements of the process which are of the nature of self-appraisal will not receive additional resources from the employing authority. The level of resourcing to address the outcomes of appraisal will be a matter of negotiation between the appraisee and the employing authority.

SCHEDULE 7 – COMPLAINTS AGAINST EMPLOYEES Current Policy and Guidelines In accordance with Clause 4.14 – Complaints against employees of this agreement attached are employing authorities’ current policy and guidelines in relation to complaints against employees.

DOWNLANDS COLLEGE Grievance Policy Rationale Good relationships within school communities are paramount to the well being and comfort of all members. To maintain good relationships, grievances or conflicts should be resolved so that all parties achieve satisfactory results. Criticism of any parties in a dispute does not support the educational community. To this end, fair and open communication ensures that the rights and responsibilities of all parties are respected and consensus achieved. Values The core values of Downlands College and of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart support a community where good relations, fair and just treatment and forgiveness are essential elements of community living. In such an environment, all are valued and respected. A strong belief in the dignity of each person and a sense of fairness and justice underpin this policy. Policy Downlands College is committed to providing a fair, safe and productive work environment where grievances are dealt with sensitively and expeditiously. Guidelines 1.

An essential part of developing that environment is ensuring that all are encouraged to come forward with their grievances in the knowledge that the proper authorities will take appropriate action to address those grievances. Grievances that are not addressed have the potential to grow into major problems that can cause tension, low morale and reduced performance and productivity.

2.

This policy applies to all forms of grievances with the exception of grievances that may constitute unlawful conduct or behaviour, which should be progressed through the more formal channels appropriate to the conduct.

3.

Grievance resolution is an integral part of an administrator’s duties. Each administrator has a responsibility to identify, prevent and address problems in the workplace.

4.

Any member of the educational community may lodge a grievance regarding school related problems. However, if other procedures exist that more appropriately addresses that grievance (eg sexual harassment or unlawful discrimination), that mechanism should be used.
