Permanency for School Assistants

Therese explains how School Assistants can win a permanent position.

As it currently stands anyone who is eligible for permanency (ie. completed two years of continuous service with satisfactory contract assessment reports) may be offered a permanent position if there is one available in the system. 

Once a position is available it will be offered to those with eligibility using a sequential process.

ETD are keeping a record of all contract staff in this situation and will endeavour to inform you as soon as possible of positions that are available.

Unfortunately this means that a position may not be available until the new term begins in 2015.

If you believe you are eligible for permanency and have not been informed one way or the other, you can request a review of your status by contacting your Principal or HR People Services on 62055000.
