Schools Questions And Answers

Why should my school use an agency?

The benefit of using our agency for teacher recruitment is that we offer a personalised service to our clients. We understand school communities and their needs, you can be assured that all our teachers are VIT registered and have been through an interview process with our company. The agency has all necessary insurances in place. e.g. Workcover, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity. We are the employer of the CRT as deemed by Workcover Victoria and the Australian Taxation Office. We will supply a copy of all our insurances for your school to have on file.

Some schools choose to use our agency only as a back up or during peak times when their pool of CRT's are not available, your school is under no obligation to use PEM as their only source for CRT’s however schools that use us exclusively have the added benefit of offering CRT's contract positions at no cost to their school.

How much will this cost my school?

PEM will invoice your school on a weekly basis for any CRT's placed at your school. The invoice will outline the name, date of placement and VIT registration number of the CRT. Current daily rates will be discussed directly with your school prior to registration.

How do I book a CRT?

Our phones are manned from 6.30am-9.30pm Monday to Friday (1300 889 235) during school term. We try to answer all our calls so we can fully understand your requirements. If you leave a message on our answering service, please leave as much information as possible. E.g. the class teacher has not left a work program; the students will be attending a sports day. All this info helps us and we can then pass it on to the CRT. You can also email us with the booking
We confirm all placements by email/text before the start of the day so you will know the CRT that is relieving at your school.

CRT's booked at your school

Once your school is registered with PEM, all CRT's introduced to your school must be booked through the PEM booking system. Schools cannot book and employ CRT’s directly.

Can I request a particular CRT?

Yes of course, we understand if a CRT is working well at your school and the school requires continuity, you can request the CRT for your school.

Contract Teachers

 If your school utilises our CRT service exclusively, there is no charge; however there will be a charge for schools that do not use our CRT services exclusively.
