An Introduction For New Teachers

Welcome to
Beverly Hills
Intensive English Centre.

These notes have been compiled to help you understand how the Centre operates. If there are issues or practices that are not covered here please tell the Head Teacher so that the appropriate amendments may be made.

On your first day please ensure that:
you have completed an OASIS staff information form (all staff)
you sign on in the sign-on book located in the staff room foyer. You will need to be allocated a number.

If you are a new appointment, your entry-on-duty notice should be handed in.
New casual relief staff may need a Tax Exemption form and a Direct Deposit Authority. Both of these are available from the Senior School Assistant.

Pay claim forms (blue forms) for casual staff are found in the front office (ask the School Assistants) or in the staffroom, clipped to the back of the desks facing the coffee tables. The school code is 0815. You will be advised of the account code to be used on the day.
Claim forms should be returned to the Head Teacher directly or, if on more than a daily relief basis, left in the tray at the front office counter window for signing.

Casual Relief Staff should receive a pro-forma with classes to be taken for the day. Please write on the pro-forma details of work each of your classes covered and leave for the teacher you have replaced.
