(a) For government schools, figures on IT specialist or other speciality areas are not maintained centrally. A Skills and Qualifications database is being developed to initially collect this data on the teaching workforce. Government schools employ and contract IT professionals in a variety of ways to best suit their individual needs and IT environments. For example: IT teachers; Information Technology Officers (ITOs); school assistants; maintenance contracts with IT businesses; InTACT support; IT trainees; and "e-coaches"and IT support from Centre for Teaching and Learning Technologies.

The department does not have this information for non-government schools.

(a) Each government primary school (68) has an Office Manager, previously called a Bursar, and each secondary school (25) has a Registrar. Two very small primary schools have a part-time Office Manager and two K-10 schools have both a Registrar and an Office Manager.

The department does not have this information for non-government schools.
