Prep teacher-aide hours

Last week in the State Budget, the government announced $24.8 million to be allocated over four years to ensure that every state primary school achieves a pro-rated full-time (25 hours per week) teacher-aide for prep classes, through the allocation of an extra 4,000 hours per week of teacher-aide time.

Many schools already deliver 25 hours per week of teacher-aide time in prep by reallocating hours or using school funds to top up this time. This welcome announcement will mean that schools can re-divert any extra teacher-aide resources back across to other year levels, which will assist in reducing workload for classroom teachers and achieving better educational outcomes for students, particularly in the lower primary years.
