Performance and Development for Teacher Class Employees

2021 Statement of Expectation for Teacher Class Employees

The performance and development process in 2021 provides the opportunity for teacher class employees to choose to undertake the standard Performance and Development Plan (PDP) process or an alternative Statement of Expectation. Staff selecting the Statement of Expectation process are not required to complete any routine documentation or monitoring in eduPay.

The 2021 Statement of Expectation for teacher class employees is set out below. Teacher class employees are encouraged to consider how they contribute to these areas as appropriate to their role and setting.

1. Learning

Teacher class employees contribute to the collaborative development and delivery of effective teaching and learning programs and resources for the students they teach. These should be aligned with aspects of the school’s 2021 Annual Implementation Plan and be effectively differentiated to support all students. This will enable both learning catch-up and learning extension, including the 2021 Tutor Learning Initiative, where this is part of their role.

2. Wellbeing

Teacher class employees foster student health and wellbeing in their classrooms, including through engagement in the collaborative planning and delivery of health and wellbeing supports for students.

3. Connected schools

Teacher class employees contribute to building community and strengthening positive partnerships with parents, carers and other individuals and groups within the wider school community. 

At the start of the cycle

  • Teachers indicate to their reviewer if they will undertake the standard PDP process or the 2021 Statement of Expectation process, at any time prior to 30 April 2021.
  • Teachers discuss with their reviewers how their contributions accord with the 2021 Statement of Expectation.

Throughout the year

  • There will continue to be benefit in regular discussions between employees and reviewers.
  • Where there is a concern that an employee is not making an appropriate contribution to meet the Statement of Expectation, this concern should be raised with that employee in writing at the time the concern becomes apparent, and no later than 1 September 2021. Support must be provided to the employee and the opportunity to enable improvement in their contribution to meet the Statement of Expectation.

At the end of the cycle

  • At the end of semester 2, teachers will reflect on and be acknowledged for their learning, growth and contribution to the 2021 Statement of Expectation with their reviewers.
  • It is assumed that teacher class employees who opt-in to this process will meet the Statement of Expectation, in which case no action is required in eduPay.
