The Christian Multi Enterprise Agreement

A future you can have faith in.

The Tasmanian Independent Christian Schools (Teachers) Multi Enterprise Agreement 2019 - or the CMEA as we like to call it - provides the framework for a new pathway of education excellence for Christ-centred education.

How will it affect me?

The core of the CMEA and its biggest strength, is the support it provides our teachers. The agreements provides teachers with the opportunity to create their own pathway and be where they want to be. If you’re a teacher wishing to take on additional roles and responsibilities outside of the classroom, or for those whose heart is strictly in the classroom, the CMEA provides a salary progression for all. Significantly, the agreement embeds a statement of faith and lifestyle clause which reflects the values and ethos of both our schools and teachers.

What is it?

The 2019 CMEA is a bold new step for those involved in, and passionate about, Christian education in our state. This agreement puts our schools in Tasmania at the forefront of where our country is heading with AITSL standards and Highly Accomplished/Lead Teacher Certification (HALT).

Breaking away from traditional enterprise agreements, the CMEA, supported by the leaders of six of Tasmania’s Christian schools (Devonport Christian School, Newstead Christian School, Launceston Christian School, Leighland Christian School, Circular Head Christian School, Southern Christian College), will lead the way for teaching standards in Tasmania, ultimately providing better outcomes and results for the students. More importantly, the CMEA’s biggest strength is the support it provides to those who bring so much value and joy to the lives of our students – our teachers.
