Welcome to the Together Department of Education blog. See below for updates about the arbitration for your wages and conditions.
It was great to see pictures already coming in as members have started to celebrate School Support Staff all across Queensland.
School Support Staff Recognition Week will be held from 13–17 September (delayed due to lockdowns and restrictions).
We know that many members have been able to celebrate already – if you have a photo to share, send it in to us! We'd love to post it!
Remember to nominate your colleagues in the QSuper ThankQ competition to recognise and reward outstanding co-workers in 2021! This is an important opportunity to share your wonderful stories about colleagues. Nominations close on Friday 3 September.
You should be recognised and celebrated for the essential role you play. We know the world class education Queensland students receive would not happen without you.
We are eagerly awaiting the news over the coming days about whether or not thousands more students will be returning to school next week and that work will look a little bit more familiar!
It’s the last day of term 2 – well done on completing another term! A quick update before school holidays begin.
Here's the latest update for Schools members.
Last week the Department confirmed that very long term temporary and casual staff with over four years of continuous service would be offered permanent employment.
As IT staff in Queensland schools, your work has made it possible for schools to continue delivering education during the last 18 months.
