Staffing au­ton­omy re­voked

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS -

SINCE 2010 In­de­pen­dent Pub­lic Schools (IPS) have had full con­trol over staffing but ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ment changes will re­quire IPS to con­sider ‘re­de­ploy­ees’ be­fore hir­ing any teach­ers or sup­port staff.

Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Sue Ellery says the changes are due to con­cerns that IPS has been snap­ping up the best teach­ers, lead­ing to a two-tiered ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.

“The new pol­icy change is that they are re­quired to demon­strate they have con­sid­ered a suit­able match, if one is sug­gested to them, from the re-de­ploy­ment pool,” she said.
