stress headache adult© ChildForum


This article covers the new and updated criteria for when an ECE Service must report a teacher (or a teacher who has since left employment) to the Teaching Council.  

A copy of the mandatory report form is available below. Please note that the fine for ECE services failing to report carries a fine of up to $25,000 unless there is reasonable justification.

In this article we look at:

(a) The circumstances under which you must make a (mandatory) report about a teacher, and

(b) When there is a confidential exit settlement with an employee.
