Administrative Officers

Hard won additional school funding will have impacts on Administration Officers within Queensland State Schools. We have not finished our campaign to have all administration officers reclassified.

The following AO2 position description has been negotiated and updated. 

Together delegates are drafting AO3 & AO4 position descriptions with the Department. These positions descriptions are not finalised yet.

However we have made some great progress and below you can see the recently released draft PDs. 

We are keen to hear your thoughts and to help members seek progression to these levels. Please get in touch at

WIN! For International Student and Home Stay Coordinators

In 2016 we wrote to the Department about their failure to pay you an appropriate on-call allowance and recall to duty allowances when you are performing your work.

Six weeks later we received this letter from the Department saying they would "get back to us next year" essentially.

Given that the Department had had six weeks to respond to us we lodged a dispute in the Industrial Relations Commission to get urgent resolution.

The Department have now, as a result of this dispute, advised all your managers that they MUST pay you an on-call allowance and recall to duty.

Payroll have been in touch with all the claimants we have identified. If you have not been contacted email us at
