Many teachers start their career as day-to-day casual relief teachers (CRTs). This fact sheet supports CRTs’ induction, enabling them to deliver structured learning to their students and efficiently understand the school context.
School systems have policies that outline the pre-employment requirements of a CRT along with conditions of employment and record-keeping requirements.
- Schools have a duty of care for the wellbeing and workplace safety of CRTs.
- Schools should consider how they will introduce their policies and procedures to CRTs.
- Schools should be clear about any additional administrative information that must be provided to the CRT, including important information about the structure of their day, routines for the beginning and end of the day, summaries of lessons,
any incidents impacting the school or classes as well as hand over material provided by the regular teacher where available.
