School Attestations report

The School Attestations report shows the names of teachers (including relievers), teacher aides and support staff who meet the service requirement to receive a salary increment. Depending on their employment agreement, the employee may also need to be confirmed as meeting professional standards before they can progress up the salary scale.

See Attestation report for more detail.


Purpose

Use the School Attestations report to check each employee's eligibility for an increment.

Schools are notified of eligible employees via this report before the salary increments are due, so that professional standards appraisals can be performed and attestation provided before the employee becomes eligible. Schools must manually confirm that the teachers included in the report have met the performance requirements.

For teacher aides - schools are notified 90 days before the automatic salary increments are applied, so that schools can defer if a teacher aide is not eligible, notify the Service Centre, and give the teacher aide 60 days' notice of the deferral. If the teacher aide is eligible, they will automatically receive the increment.

For other employees - complete an EdPay pay details change request (or a NOVO 24nt for an annualised employee) form to confirm that the employee is eligible for an increment and submit it to the Service Centre.

For more details, visit the Attestation Report page.
