Is there a “Room Leader” allowance?


The term “Room Leader” is a description of a role and is not defined as a classification in either the Children’s Services Award or the Educational Services (Teachers) Award, and therefore no allowance applies.

Typically a teacher in a children’s education and care service would adopt a leadership role as a part of their duties.

It is important to note that a Children’s Service’s Employee can meet the classification criteria of a Level 4 employee, as defined in the Award, without being a Room Leader.
