Enterprise Bargaining Agreement

Full details of teaching staff employment conditions can be found in the Teaching Staff Enterprise Bargaining Agreement. Additional allowances are calculated in the following way:
 
Council Allowance 8% of top of scale base salary
Senior Teacher I 6% of top of scale base salary
Senior Teacher II 12% of top of scale base salary

 The School Council allowance of 8% on top of school base salary is provided in recognition of the responsibilities of all members of the teaching staff, over and above the involvement normally expected of a teacher in a school of this kind. This allowance applies to all teachers in addition to their respective base level salaries.

In addition to this remuneration, all academic staff are provided with access to their own phone and voice mail, internet access and email, and full-time academic staff are provided with a laptop computer or iPad.

Two levels of Senior Teaching status exist within the School. Such status is awarded to teachers who undergo agreed appraisal processes and who are not a part of the administrative elements of School life. Senior Teacher status is awarded for three years and is reviewed annually by the Head of Department, in consultation with the Director of Staffing – Strategic Projects and the Director of Studies.

A Senior Teacher is one who is rewarded for quality practice that directly affects student outcomes.

Senior Teacher Level 1 (ST1)

The fundamental requirement for appointment to ST1 classification is continuous exemplary classroom practice. It is the responsibility of the applicant to demonstrate that exemplary standards of teaching and learning are being achieved by means of a professional portfolio. The contents of the portfolio will be discussed at a viva held at the end of the review process.

Senior Teacher Level 2 (ST2)

The award of the ST2 classification is dependent upon the criteria for ST1 being maintained and the substantial involvement of the applicant as an innovative practitioner within his or her subject area. The applicant will produce a portfolio that demonstrates this innovation and a viva will be held at the end of the review process.
