Relief teaching staff
(Question No 1034)
Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Education, Youth and Family Services on 22 October 2003:
In relation to relief teaching staff:
(1) How many relief teachers registered with the ACT Department of Education, Youth and Family Services have come from interstate for contracts in the ACT;
(2) Of these relief teachers, how many have been offered extensions of their contracts;
(3) Of these relief teachers, how many have accepted extensions of their contracts;
(4) What is the average contract period for relief teachers registered with the ACT Department of Education, Youth and Family Services.
Ms Gallagher: The answer to Mr Pratt's question is:
(1) The department does not have data on the place of origin of teachers registered for relief teaching. However, 118 registered relief teachers have addresses outside the ACT.
(2) Relief teaching work is casual work replacing teachers who are attending a professional learning activity or are unexpectedly on short-term leave. The standard contract is for one day. Many relief teachers are offered consecutive daily contracts. The database used for managing relief teachers does not record information on offers of work, only work completed.
(3) Depending on their availability, many relief teachers accept consecutive daily contracts, either at the one school or at several schools.
(4) The standard contract period for a casual relief teacher is one day.
