Today, the Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (CCER) presented the IEU with Catholic Employers’ proposal for a new Enterprise Agreement to apply to the majority of staff working in Catholic Systemic Schools in NSW and the ACT.
The proposed Agreement is Catholic Education’s response to the changing education landscape in Australia today and to what you’ve told us are your priorities and concerns.
Most importantly, it’s the beginning of a conversation that we would like to have with you and the IEU about the future of our schools. Click through here to find out more about what we’re proposing. Over the coming weeks, you will have an opportunity to find out more about the proposed Agreement from your school Principal. You can also engage with the conversation on the Foundations for Excellence website.
We are committed to responding to the IEU claim in a way that directly reflects staff concerns about rapidly changing learning environments, the importance of professional learning and development opportunities and the need for collaborative work environments which provide practical support.
To ensure we’re reflecting your views and priorities in facing these challenges, in 2013 we decided to speak to you – Catholic school staff – about the changing nature of teaching and learning. Click through to find out what you told us.
We encourage you to become involved in discussions about these issues both in terms of the enterprise agreement negotiations and as part of the ongoing discussion in your school communities.
