Hi,

Are you Diploma Qualified, if so as per your level you will be on Level 3.4 and as per your wage prior to July 01 it would be $26.66/ but from 01 July, there has been a 4.6% increase so your wage should currently be $27.89/per hour.

As per your master of teaching, you will not receive a pay increase unless you're the ECT of the service. Then it may be possible to receive an increase.

Yes, if your service has applied for a waiver and you and the ECT of the service then you should be paid as a Level 1 of the Educational Services Teachers Award.

Queries about level 4.1

Post by ftilmansoare » Sun Jul 24, 2022 10:48 pm

Hi Lorena

I have been working with a centre for almost two years with a diploma qualified. I just become room leader six months ago. Am I in level 4.1? I got my diploma in 2019.
