Parent Representative Needed for Teacher Merit Selection - ASAP
Are you interested in helping select a new teacher at our school? Contact us at email@example.com If you could let us know by this Wednesday as we need to appoint a parent representative by then so as not to delay hiring process.
Merit selection is one way in which school staff can be appointed to positions within a school and involves a panel being formed which includes a parent representative.
The parents representative’s role is to represent the interests of the students, parents and the school community in the selection of school staff.
Tasks and time commitment involved
Ad writing – usually a couple of hours (during school hours)
Time for reading the applications prior to shortlisting (NOTE: The time this will take is dependent on the number of applications received)
Shortlisting – a full day (during school hours)
Interviews – a full day (during school hours)
Online training is provided for new panel members and you don't need to be a P&C member, just a parent/carer who wants to be part of an important process in the school staff section. Department of Education and P&C Federation guide
