WAECSSA supports Corporate Service staff through professional learning opportunities held during school terms and holiday breaks. Opportunities to build capacity and continually develop their skill set include our yearly conference held each year in third term at Crown Perth, School Officer Day held in the first term and professional learning held during vacation periods. These are well supported through the Department’s Directorates covering a variety of areas including:
- Finance and Administration,
- Personal and Payroll,
- Student Service Systems,
- Records Management, Standards and Integrity,
- Information and Technology,
- Compliance and Audit, and
- Employee Support Bureau.
At these events we also draw on renowned keynote speakers who are leaders in their fields. A recent focus has been on leadership and what this means and how it looks in today’s corporate world. Keynote speakers have included Shelly Taylor Smith, Des Penny from Proteus, Mark Donehue from Deakin University to name a few.
WAECSSA also provides opportunities for Department of Education Staff to meet informally through various functions such as Sundowners to network with colleagues and build a collegiate support frame of like-minded professionals. This is an invaluable source of information and support.
