New Educational Leader Allowance

Important News
New Educational Leader Allowance Payable from 1 November 2022

On 31 August 2022 the Fair Work Commission formally decided to insert a new Educational Leader Allowance into the Children’s Services Award, effective 1 November 2022.

From this date, an annual allowance of $4022.05 will be payable to all Educational Leaders, remembering that each Service is required to have an Educational Leader under National Regulation 118.

Where a permanent employee is working on a part-time basis as Educational Leader (for example, where they stand-in as Educational Leader for an interim period) they will receive an estimated allowance of $15.47 daily for each day they work as Educational Leader.

Services should begin planning for this additional cost, if they haven’t already, and consider the impact on fees charged to families.

Network is sure our members will have many questions about the implications of this change, we’ve tried to pre-empt some of them below:
