NSW Department of Education casual teachers will soon be able to have their accreditation verified within the ClassCover app.
This simple addition will have major benefits and will add an extra layer of quality assurance that casual teachers are verified and ready to teach in schools. It’s not only important for schools who are looking to add new teachers, but also for current casual teacher list management as validation can expire and it can be a challenge to keep on top of it.
Currently schools are having to check several outside sources to ensure a teacher has all relevant accreditation and that it is up to date. This can be time consuming and can also have a negative impact on teachers who haven’t uploaded enough information in their ClassCover profile.
Having a validated profile for NSW public schools will increase casual teachers’ work prospects and improve efficiency for thousands of schools.
What will casual teachers need to do to get verified?
Teachers will notice a pop up on both the mobile and desktop versions of ClassCover. This pop up asks if a teacher currently teaches in or are interested in teaching in NSW public schools. If yes, then a NESA number will be required as well as consent to send these details through ClassCover to the NSW Department of Education.
The feature is intended to go live in Term 4 2020 and teachers who entered these details will show as ‘verified’ within ClassCover for schools to see.
