Practicum Payments


Fair Work Australia has terminated the Award which regulated the payment of teachers who supervise and coordinate student teachers.

As a result, the IEU Victoria Tasmania has written to all tertiary providers of teacher education in Victoria requesting that:

  1. They provide an assurance that they will continue to pay teachers the existing rates for supervising and coordinating student teachers.
  2. They negotiate with the IEU Victoria Tasmania to establish a written agreement to cover the payment for supervision and coordination of student teachers.
