School Officer Day, celebrated annually on the second Wednesday in June, is our opportunity to celebrate the vital role support staff play in education and how our union is working to ensure they have careers they can count on.

In 2024, School Officer Day was held on Wednesday, 12 June.

The support staff difference

Schools simply would not function without school support staff.

From laboratory technicians, classroom assistants, grounds staff and administrative staff to cleaning staff, library assistants to AV and IT specialists, support staff are dedicated professionals.

Our union understands the specific challenges facing support staff – particularly in regard to classification, contract arrangements, wages and recognition.

The Alternative School Officer Classification System (ASOCS) was a significant win achieved by IEU member in Queensland Catholic school in their last round of collective bargaining.
