AEDC teacher reimbursement

Teacher Relief Invoicing Support

Funding will again be provided to release teachers of kindergarten students from the classroom to complete the census and the teacher training module. On completion schools will generate an online claim for reimbursement up until 28 September 2018. This will be sent electronically to the Social Research Centre (SRC), acting on behalf of the Australian Government.

Relief Rates – The daily rates of pay reflect casual teaching rates, not the rate of the classroom teacher. Rates provided include on-costs of 18.7%.

For government schools the banking details have been pre-populated but schools must generate an online claim for reimbursement after all checklists have been completed.

Untied funds received from AEDC will be journaled into the following G/L – 430054, Cost Centre 6XXXX101 2-6 weeks after the online claim for reimbursement has been submitted. As all teacher relief now includes on-costs, the general relief Code 021 should be used when submitting the casual relief claim.

Calculation – The school receives 1 hour of relief for each teacher who completes the training module and 20 minutes per completed checklist, that is, 3 children per hour. See the examples below for guidance as to eligible relief time. A half-day minimum payment is provided for schools whose time completing the AEDC is less than 3 hours.

Example – Guidance for Eligible Teacher Relief

Government

Teacher A – 22 children/checklists = 7hrs 20min (22÷3) + 1hr t/training = 8hrs 20min

Daily casual rate to relieve Teacher 1 = $442.68 ($73.78 p/h) (Casual rate is an example)

Reimbursement: 7hrs 20min X $73.78 = $541.05 (checklists) + $73.78 (training) = $614.83

Teacher B – 9 children/checklists (multi-stage) = 3 hours (9÷3) + 1hr t/training = 4hrs

Daily casual rate to relieve Teacher 1 = $442.68 ($73.78 p/h) (Casual rate is an example)

Reimbursement: 3hrs X $73.78 = $221.34 (checklists) + $73.78 (training) = $295.12

Teacher C – 4 children/checklists = 1hr 20min (4÷3) + 1hr t/training = 2hrs 20min

Daily casual rate to relieve Teacher 1 = $442.68 ($73.78 p/h) (Casual rate is an example)

Reimbursement: 1hr 20min X $73.78 = $98.38 (checklists) + $73.78 (training) = $172.15

However, a half-day minimum payment applies for schools whose time completing the AEDC is less than 3 hours. School will receive 3hrs X $73.78 = 221.34
