The review of school officer classifications and pay rates in Queensland Catholic schools provides a once in a generation opportunity to deliver careers school officer members can count on.
School officers play a critical role in the delivery of quality education – and the review is the chance to build meaningful career paths and ensure long overdue professional recognition for these Queensland Catholic school staff.
The current school officer classification and pay structure was developed over 25 years ago.
Despite some amendments in specific areas, the structure essentially remains the same as that which applied in 1995 – despite the extraordinary changes that have occurred in schools and in the work and responsibilities school officers now undertake.
This review was a key priority identified by members when collective bargaining began last year. The new Queensland Catholic school collective agreements contain clear requirements for the conduct and scope of the review.
Like all negotiations, our success in the classification review will rely on member engagement and action. To learn more and add your voice to the campaign, visit: www.qieu.asn.au/careersyoucancounton
