NSW DEC Teacher Selection Panelist Training

NSW DEC Teacher Selection Panelist Training

Composition of Teacher Selection Panels

(Extract from http://www.teach.nsw.edu.au/documents/sel_panelproc2.pdf)
Pursuant to DEC policy, the CHS P&C Association will be invited to participate in each Teacher Selection Panel convened at CHS. If the Association wishes to participate, it must nominate its representative within 10 working days.

The nominated parent representative must be a financial member of the P&C Assn and endorsed by the Assn President.


Training for Selection Panel Nominees

All Selection Panel members must be trained in selection procedures. The training package is available at http://www.teach.nsw.edu.au/jobsnsw/elearning.htm.

P&C Assn members who may be interested in participating in future teacher Selection Panel opportunities are encouraged to complete the DEC online training provided at http://www.dec.nsw.gov.au/about-us/careers-centre/e-learning. Once your individual online training is completed, please notify the P&C Assn Secretary for inclusion on the P&C List of Selection Panel Nominees.

P&C Assn members who have received training related to the Selection Panel Procedures for School Teachers 2009 do not need to be retrained. However, these members need to ensure they have read the updated Selection Panel Procedures for School Teachers 2013 to be eligible for nomination for future Selection Panels. 

The CHS Principal (or Director, Public Schools NSW) must arrange for any untrained panel member to be provided with training. DEC will monitor training of Selection Panel members.
