Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 11 February 2010) . . Page.. 372 ..


(9) Noting that the CIT Teacher Qualifications and Experience Policy states that “All permanent and temporary teaching staff will have, or be expected to gain within twelve months from their date of commencement, one of the following education qualifications”, where the qualifications are the Cert IV TAA or one of the qualifications considered equivalent to the Cert IV TAA as listed in the AQTF 2007 Essential Standards for Registration, what happens to CIT teachers who fail to gain a qualification satisfying AQTF 2007 requirements within the prescribed 12 month period.

(2) CIT meets all the requirements of the AQTF 2007 Essential Standards for Registration in relation to its teaching workforce. It is not cost effective to identify all the specific qualifications of each of its teachers, as this would require scanning more than 550 records.
