Academic Casual Staff

This protocol is for casual academic staff who are employed by the University for an average of more than 13 hours per semester, delivering onshore undergraduate and postgraduate programs.

Casual academic staff provide a valuable service to the University by teaching and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students in onshore face to face and online settings.

These protocols provide a framework for the implementation of quality assurance and best practice processes for the management of academic casual staff to ensure an equitable and consistent approach to the recruitment, selection, employment and development of casual academic staff. Casual academic staff employment conditions are derived from the applicable industrial instrument.

Note: Casual academic staff are sometimes referred to as sessional staff.
