The high number of school managers currently and going on stress leave is no surprise to me at all, now a victim myself. Bullying, nepotism and corruption are all in a days work for a great senior manager out of schools in this system.
12 weeks holiday
Very well run organisation. Management is very supportive. Good work-life balance. Work flexibility. Goals are very clearly laid out. The immediate manager is very supportive and helpful.
Work-life balance. Flexibility. Management very supportive
Teachers and aides are wonderful people to work with engaging with students every day is very rewarding as well as challenging! Everyone is a learner.
After working with the Department of Education 8 years, as ICT support and management, I can genuinely say the individuals running this organisation are out of touch, as I was recently let go from my former position as ICT management being informed that "I would be bored and I'm no longer required at the facility" Then having them advertise two ICT positions the next week. At my former facility, I was bullied and ignored on decision making around ICT needs Including being pulled into the office multiple times and yelled at by the principal at the site for not meeting unrealistic targets that they would set, I was not included or informed of significant decisions happening around the environment by leadership and any form of the sense thus crippling our teams effectiveness, the facility that I worked out lost all three of there ICT team members in the space of a couple of weeks, including myself who had worked nine years, my support officer who had worked four years, and our line manager who had worked 25 years in ICT.

So much accountability is placed on teachers these days i.e. we are are not only expected to be supreme educators, but also psychologists/doctors/nurses/mentors/marriage counsellors. There is also a high expectation of attendance to out of school hours activities e.g. camps/meetings/art shows/working bees/fetes/sporting programs.
There are various roles within the DET. I held teaching roles across K-6, special education, RFF, library and casual or temporary teaching roles. DET has great systems in place but I would like a temporary role to develop my maintenance accreditation.
Virtual learning will have a HUGE impact on education. It success will depend on the quality of the execution, the buy-in of senior educators such as Principals and the measurements of it's implementation.
Building relationships with school Principals and senior DET staff
Worked here for numerous years and really enjoyed the positions u had held until recent years with the previous 3 managers who pressured, bullied, belittled not only me but it her colleagues. Left with a feeling of incompetence and really struggling to see my worth. Has really affected my confidence levels.
