HEAT teachers are among the unemployed and underemployed who have been left frustrated and angry by the government’s failure to provide them with the education and training they need.
“They don’t want to be employed, but they’re still in school,” said Lisa O’Brien, a HEAT teacher who is now a parent of a 13-year-old girl in Sydney.
She has seen students struggle to make their mark in the classroom because they do not have enough experience, she said.
“I’ve seen a few students who I’ve trained up to the standards I’m now teaching.
They’re very focused, but I think that’s not enough.
We need teachers that are more able to get them through the day, more able than they are to just walk in, but able to talk to them.”
But she said the Government’s current school-to-work program was not working.
“The schools have to be managed.
It’s like trying to manage the economy.
The schools are not running well,” she said, adding that she was not surprised that she did not find work in her field after being hired as a HEAC teacher.”
If I’d been a school teacher, I’d have been able to train up to a certain level, but it doesn’t work like that.”
Ms O’Byrne said the HEAT program had been a huge success in terms of training up teachers, but there was still a long way to go.
“You have to have a good teacher.
You can’t have an idiot teacher, a bad teacher,” she added.”
It just doesn’t seem to be working.”THE BUREAU OF HEALTH STUDENTS SAY HEALTHY HEALTH AND WELLNESS ARE A KEY TO A GOOD HEALTH CARE PAYER, BUT THERE IS NO DATA TO PROVE IT THE Australian Bureau of Statistics said the health care workforce in Australia has been a key part of its wellbeing and well-being index since its inception in 2010.”
It’s a problem we have in education.
It just doesn’t seem to be working.”THE BUREAU OF HEALTH STUDENTS SAY HEALTHY HEALTH AND WELLNESS ARE A KEY TO A GOOD HEALTH CARE PAYER, BUT THERE IS NO DATA TO PROVE IT THE Australian Bureau of Statistics said the health care workforce in Australia has been a key part of its wellbeing and well-being index since its inception in 2010.
But its latest data, released on Tuesday, shows that the proportion of workers aged 16 and over who reported being satisfied with their health remained low at 49 per cent.
It said more than half (56 per cent) of respondents said they were dissatisfied with their own health, and nearly two thirds (67 per cent), said they would be less likely to seek treatment or care for a health problem if they knew it was covered.
The data also showed that more than three quarters (77 per cent of respondents) of people said they felt more than once a week they were not getting enough sleep.
The Bureau of Social and Personal Finance said in a statement that health and wellbeing were a key issue for its members.
“It is the duty of the health system to ensure the health and well being of all of its members is achieved,” it said.
“In the most recent Australian Social Trends Survey, 76 per cent said they had a high level of concern about their health and that the most important issue was a good balance between their own physical and mental health.”
But, at the same time, almost one in three respondents said their health did not always improve as a result of health care.
“The Bureau also said that about a third of Australians aged between 16 and 64 had been in the workforce for less than a year, with nearly half (47 per cent, or 2.5 million people) aged under 35, while the rest were aged over 65.”
People in this age group are the most likely to have suffered a health incident in the past year and were at higher risk for a range of health problems,” the statement said.
Mr O’Connor said the lack of data was not just a problem for HEAC teachers.”
When I got the job, I thought that the job would give me a good paycheque, but the reality is, I was just barely making enough to get by,” he said.
He said HEAC was not the only sector that had problems with its pay rates.”
My colleagues are struggling with the same issues,” he added.
The HEAC union has said it has not heard from any HEAC employees in recent months.
