Support staff

​​​​​​​As ancillary and support staff, you contribute to the efficient running of the school. Strong professional rapport between support staff and teachers is essential; by working together you create the best environment for students.

Roles include:

Mandatory induction

New employees are required to complete mandatory induction in a suitable format and all employees review mandatory components of their induction on an annual basis.

Details of the mandatory requirements for your role are provided in the relevant Induction planner.

The department has developed the online mandatory induction program as an optional resource to supplement local face-to-face induction.

Developing performance

The Developing Performance Framework provides an ongoing process for conversations with your team leader to discuss your capabilities and your career aspirations, and to plan further professional development.
