Members’ voice heard on NCCD: Too long, too much and too little

18 November, 2021

Assistant Secretary/Treasurer Paul Giles reflects on the recent survey undertaken by our union regarding the implementation of Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) across Queensland and Northern Territory schools during 2021.

The results of our union’s survey of IEU Chapters reinforces members’ concerns that the level of many of the employer demands associated with the NCCD collection and presentation of data are both unrealistic and unnecessary.

Members also raised concerns that these demands and expectations not only appear to be inconsistent between sectors and regions but even within sectors and within the same employing authority.

The insights of the survey are such that school employing authorities  must revisit and amend their expectations and processes regarding NCCD, which go beyond the government requirements.
