Casual teaching procedures

As a support to the teaching activities of the School, staff may employ casual demonstrators or teaching assistants.

This can only be done with approval from the Head of School and needs to be planned for, prior to the start of semester with the submission of a budget of the required teaching assistance required for each unit. This budget allows for planning and allocation of resources and funding supporting the teaching activities of the School.

Once the budget is approved, the Course coordinator must complete a Casual Academic Employment Agreement with the proposed casual employee.

The casual employee must complete a Casual Academic Employment Agreement, Authorisation for Salary Transfer and Tax File Number form and submit to the Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering (EECE) Office (Room 1.52) for approval from the Head of School and for forwarding to HR.

Once this is completed, the casual employee will be placed on the system and salary payments can be made. The casual employee then completes a Casual Teaching Claim Form (timesheet) for the hours performed each fortnight and submits to the EECE office fortnightly. These forms need to be co-signed by the Course coordinator before submitting. Noting:

Hours in excess of the Casual Academic Employment Agreement fortnightly allowance require explanation from the Course coordinator as to the reason for the extra hours beyond that budgeted for. Course coordinators also need to be aware of the fortnightly hourly limitations on casual employees that are in receipt of scholarships.

Casual Academic Employment Agreement

The Casual Academic Employment Agreement (CAEA) is an agreement between the Course coordinator, the casual employee and the Head of School reflecting the budgeted assistance. It shows the number of fortnightly hours the casual employee is permitted to claim for during the term of employment.

Should the fortnightly claim be over the agreed fortnightly hours, the Course coordinator will need to provide explanation on the timesheet for the extra hours beyond that budgeted.

The CAEA applies to one semester of teaching per unit.
