TRB SA – submission by the IEU

On November 8, your Union lodged a submission to the Legislative Review Committee objecting to the proposed amendments to the Teachers Registration and Standards Act 2004.

Prior to the official submission we organised multiple social media messages such as the graphic below to clarify visually our concerns for the direction the government wishes to take the TRB.

We see no benefit to the operation of the Board and the execution of its functions with the significant changes that are being proposed. In fact more than that, we see there are significant problems for the Board itself and the profession, if these changes were to be legislated. It is seen to be change for the sake of change and as such, a retrograde step.

We urge all teachers and education staff to read the full submission: please download the submission in PDF here
