Code of Professional Practice

The TANVic group of agencies adds value and provides a necessary service to the education community of Victoria. As a group, TANVic agencies ensure that they are fully informed in regard to the provisions allowing them to facilitate the employment/placement of casual relief teachers in Victorian schools.

TANVic meets on a regular basis to share experiences, to learn of new developments, trends and opportunities in a mutually beneficial, non- competitive environment. Member agencies benefit from knowledge and information provided by guest presenters. Alliances with relevant bodies, eg Department of Education & Training, Victorian Institute of Teaching, ASCIV, Australian Education Union and teacher education institutions inform the group of legislative changes and related policies concerning Victorian schools, with a specific focus on the implications for the employment/placement of casual relief teachers.

Member agencies adhere to industrially respected, legislatively responsible and professionally enhancing business practices to benefit schools, educators and students for whom they exist.

TANVIC recognises that as private businesses, each member agency has in place its own, unique methods of operation within two main streams of engagement:

  • Employment Agencies/Recruitment Agencies – single agency employer and on-hirer to schools
  • Placement Agencies/Booking Agencies – each school is a separate direct employer

Member agencies are legally registered businesses that comply with legislative and regulatory requirements of authorities, for example:

  1. All relevant pre-employment/placement checks carried out
    • Verification of current registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching
    • Verification of current criminal records checks
  2. Holding of appropriate insurances
  3. Adherence to legislative requirements for;
    • Superannuation
    • WorkCover
    • State & Federal taxes / fees
    • All other relevant employer obligations
