So you are supervising a pre-service teacher?
Supervision of pre service teachers is undoubtedly of great benefit to the profession. Before agreeing to provide supervision to a pre-service teacher, it is important that you check the terms and conditions you’re being asked to accept.
- Ensure any monetary payment is being offered directly to you.
- Check the rate of payment for the placement. The current agreed rate is $34 per day.
- Be sure to know the terms of the placement, particularly contextual days. These are days where the pre-service teacher will observing rather than actually teaching. The Universities argue that the supervision payment isn’t required on those days.
If you are accepting a pre-service teacher from a Queensland-based university, they are signatories to our existing industrial agreement, which ensures payment directly to the supervising teacher at the agreed rate.
