Performance and Development for Teacher Class Employees

2022 Statement of Expectation for Teacher Class Employees

The performance and development process in 2022 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 2022 Statement of Expectation for teacher class employees is aligned to the key improvement strategies of learning and wellbeing. 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, learning and assessment programs and resources for the students they teach. These should be aligned with aspects of the school’s 2022 Annual Implementation Plan and be effectively differentiated to support students. This will support student learning growth through the ongoing acquisition of knowledge, skills and capabilities defined by the Victorian Curriculum F-10 and senior secondary qualifications.

2. Wellbeing

Teacher class employees foster student health and wellbeing in their classrooms, including through engagement in the collaborative planning and delivery of supports to strengthen student wellbeing. Teachers build relationships that foster a positive school climate and strengthen positive partnerships with parents, carers and other individuals and groups to support students’ participation in and sense of belonging in the school community. This will support students to develop the capabilities necessary to thrive, contribute and respond positively to the challenges and opportunities of life.

At the start of the cycle

  • Teachers indicate to their reviewer if they will undertake the standard PDP process or the 2022 Statement of Expectation process, at any time prior to 30 April 2022
  • Teachers discuss how their contributions align with the 2022 Statement of Expectation

Throughout the year

  • The teacher and reviewer meet regularly throughout the year
  • 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 the employee at the time the concern becomes apparent and no later than 1 September 2022 and provided in writing along with proposed improvement supports

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 Statement of Expectation with their reviewers
