Leading Vocational Teacher (Former Employee) – Mackay QLD – 22 April 2018
CQIT and CQU merged ( read CQU took over CQIT) five years ago, I worked for CQIT. The academics from CQUniversity treated us like garbage, and the management could not figure out how the VET industry worked. Since then it has gone from bad to worse with over half of the teachers leaving and not being replaced, all of the lower management are also gone, as are all of the admin support. Market share has dropped from over 70% to about 5%. You can then figure out what is expected of the teachers that are still there. To add to the misery, they recently forced a new EBA on the VET teachers which strips away all of the rights they used to have, and reduced annual leave from 9 weeks to 6 weeks per year, and reduced wages, some as much as 30% as they removed a pay scale for those teachers who held tertiary qualifications.
Every7 aspect of the job.
