NSW Department of Education Employee Review

Responsibility Overview

I am currently accountable for the performance and planning of IAM Services into Schools and TAFE and limited IAM Services into Non-Government Schools. The Department operates out of 2,200 locations, including some of the remotest parts of the state. There are some 2 million active identities under management including Students, Teachers, In-School and Head Office Support Staff, generating some 80 million user and account lifecycle events and some 900,000 password resets each year.

Pros

Work/Life Balance

Cons

Immature IT Service Management Culture

Same location

The place to be if you are a teacher.

Schools can be very different. Overwhelmingly the staff are friendly and collaboration is the order of the day. There is a tendency to lose this collaboration as you move into executive positions but again this is a culture that comes down from the top. If the Principal is collaborative, the school is pleasant. As Principals change so does the culture of the workplace. It's a lottery, some times you win.

Pros

Collegiate atmosphere, make lifelong friends. Watch students mature and become adults.

Cons

High degree of administration and reporting which actually detracts from teaching.

Supportive staff

NSW Department of Education secondary schools are quite stressful workplaces. The staff collaboration is generally quite helpful, but there are many troubled young people who bring their concerns into the classroom.
