Approval shall not unreasonably be withheld In scheduling the remaining professional development activities the employee may use unpaid time but may also use paid time by agreement with the employer Prior to the end of the PDEP cycle the employee shall provide evidence to the employer of the completion of the required professional development The employer shall confirm in writing to the employee their successful completion of requirements leading to an incremental progression Where an employee changes employment during the course of their incremental year, the employee shall provide to their new employer a copy of their PDEP plan approved by the former employer as well as details of all professional development and enhancement activities already undertaken. The new employer shall ensure that the PDEP plan of the teacher accommodates their organisational needs. The PDEP plan remains in force for the remainder of that incremental year. Provided further, that the new employer may request a revised PDEP plan be submitted within a three month period in which case the employee shall retain full credit for all professional development and enhancement activities completed under the PDEP plan with the former employer Where an employee fails to complete the required quantum of professional development within the relevant period, her/his incremental progression may be deferred for periods of up to three months at a time in order to provide the opportunity for the employee to complete the required professional development. Any deferral should be documented by the employer in writing and a copy provided to the employee. On the completion of the required professional development the increment shall proceed from that date after suitable documentary evidence is provided to the employer. This date becomes the employees new incremental anniversary date. 20
21 Situations may arise where the failure to undertake the required quantum of professional development may be for reasons beyond the control of the employee and which directly affect the capacity of the employee to undertake their professional development activities, such as, but not limited to, extended absences on paid sick leave. In such cases where requested by the employee in writing within three months of the end of the incremental year, the employer will provide the employee with an opportunity to undertake the quantum of professional development within a further period of three months from the date of the employer giving its approval. Provided the employer subsequently deems the employee to have met the requirements within the agreed extended time period, any increase in wage rates will be backdated to the employee s incremental anniversary date Situations may arise where employees are unable to undertake the required quantum of professional development due to continuous paid absences of illness or injury during the entire incremental year. In this case the employer will seek to ensure the employee is not disadvantaged in relation to an entitlement to increment Where an employee feels aggrieved about any decision undertaken throughout the process outlined in this clause, the employee may appeal that decision through the processes as provided within clause 13 - Grievance Procedure Provisions for Relief and Replacement Early Childhood Teachers Incremental Progression Within Each Classification Professional Development and Enhancement Program In order to determine the relevant quantum of professional development for a Relief Early Childhood Teacher the incremental year will be divided into two six month periods of service, 1 January 30 June and 1 July 31 December The quantum of professional development to be completed by a Relief Early Childhood Teacher in each six month period shall be based on the average weekly hours of service in the immediately preceding six month period In order to fulfil the provisions of this clause, a Relief Early Childhood Teacher shall maintain a log of service for each period of employment, including the name of the service, dates of commencement and cessation of employment and hours of employment Evidence of eligibility for increment entitlements shall be provided by Statutory Declaration by the teacher concerned Pre-school Field Officers Incremental Progression Within Each Classification Professional Development and Enhancement Program The provisions of Clause 26 shall apply except that in relation to pre-school field officers shall be required to complete 8 days of professional development per annum of which 4 days shall be child free days In order to progress to level 2 of the Adviser Classification Scale a pre-school field officer must have completed two years at level 1, in addition to the professional development as specified at
