Flexible Work for Principals


The Department of Education (the department) supports flexible work options for principals and recognises the importance of flexible work arrangements in maintaining a diverse, adaptive and high-performing workforce.

A principal may use flexible work arrangements to help balance work and life or family commitments. Requests for flexible work will be considered case by case taking into account broader department policy, legislative requirements and the needs of both the principal and the school. Approval processes will depend on the flexible work option; these are set out in the policy and guidelines tab.
