You choose the school where you want to work. As each school and office
employs its own staff, you chose the school/office that appeals to you
and best suits your skills and interests at the time. Current vacancies
are listed on this site as well as in the West Australian and of course
on the relevant school’s website. Applications are made directly to the
school/office by the closing date specified.
As a new staff member, you will have a structured introduction to your
school and the Catholic Education system in Western Australia. Your
salary and conditions of employment are negotiated through Catholic
Education WA. This provides the same remuneration for all
staff in Catholic schools throughout the State. Your conditions are
portable between Catholic schools in the state, provided any break in
your service does not void the portability arrangements.
Arrangements exist between Catholic schools in Australia to transfer
accumulated long service leave entitlements if you chose to move
interstate to work in another Catholic school (conditions apply).
Induction, Accreditation and Professional Development
Professional Learning opportunities are well structured to meet the
development needs of new graduates as well as experienced staff.
Comprehensive learning opportunities and an accreditation program are
made available centrally at Catholic Education WA in Leederville
and also at the school level. Access to Leadership Development
programs is through fair and equitable processes.
Employee Assistance Program
In honouring its commitment to the wellbeing of all staff in Catholic
schools throughout the state, the Catholic Education Commission of
Western Australia (CECWA) resolved to provide an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for all staff in Catholic schools in Western Australia. The EAP also extends to immediate family members of staff.
The vast majority of Catholic schools will be working with Centrecare
Corporate whose program, ACCESS, is a leading provider and innovator in
the field of employee assistance. The program offers a range of
specialist, confidential and professional support services that can
include counselling, mediation, coaching and consultancy.
The program maintains the highest level of confidentiality for clients.
Those utilising the program can do so in the knowledge that no
identifying information will be released to their Principal, Catholic Education WA or the CECWA.
