Appeals procedure

This information should be read in conjunction with Appendix 2 – Appeals Procedure of the Staffing Agreement 2024-2029.

An appeal must:

The appellant/s, recommended applicant and panel convenor will be contacted by an officer from School Recruitment Operations to advice an appeal has been lodged, and the next steps.

While all efforts are made to finalise appeals as soon as possible, all parties should be aware that such reviews may take some time.
