Guidance staffing

Guidance staffing is a component of entitlement staffing, which is used to help you employ teachers.

How we calculate guidance staffing

We provide guidance staffing of 0.08 to 0.45 full-time teacher equivalent (FTTE) for each year level taught from Year 9 to Year 13 (where the number of students at each of these year levels is greater than zero).

For this calculation, the Year 13 roll is taken to be the sum of the rolls for Years 13, 14 and 15.

Schools and kura with over 450 secondary students will receive an additional 0.4 FTTE.

Guidance staffing is calculated using the total number of students in Years 9-15 (Rs).

SCHOOL TYPESIZE OF ROLL (YEARS 9 TO 15)FORMULA
Secondary, area, composite, special and restricted composite Greater than 450

(0.45 x number of non-zero roll levels [Years 9-13]) + 0.4

  Greater than 200 and equal or less than 450 0.45 x number of non-zero roll levels [Years 9-13]
  Equal or less than 200 {(0.00185 x Rs) + 0.08} x number of non-zero roll levels [Years 9-13]

Note: All calculations are rounded to 1 decimal point.
