Expenses to attend interview
Where a teacher or paraprofessional is required to travel in order to attend an interview for an advertised position in a Victorian government school, reasonable and necessary expenses will be reimbursed. The principal of the school with the advertised vacancy should discuss with the teacher or paraprofessional any expenses that may be incurred prior to the teacher or paraprofessional attending the interview. Principals should ensure that teachers or paraprofessionals do not undertake unnecessary travel by fully exploring teleconferencing facilities.
The cost of any travel and incidental expenses for eligible teachers will be met from the Student Resource Package of the school that has advertised the vacancy.
An excess employee who is required to travel in order to attend an interview as part of the redeployment process will have reasonable and necessary expenses reimbursed.
