Increase in teacher practicum payments

The IEU and the NSW Teachers Federation reached agreement in November with the Deans of Education at universities to vary the Teacher Education Professional Experience Supervision Agreement 2022, an unregistered agreement, by extending it until the end of 2023.

The daily rates for practicum supervision and coordination increased by 3 per cent from 1 January this year. The new daily rates will be $35.72 for supervision and $1.78 for coordination.

Discussions continue regarding the agreement, considering the reviews of initial teacher education underway at both federal and state levels.
