Salary and classification for Education Support Personnel

A new Public Sector Union Wages Agreement (PSUWA) was signed in December 2022 – the result of ESP, support staff and educators taking significant action together in union.

The PSUWA 2022 includes one of the highest one-year base salary increases for ESP (support staff) in Australia.

Member action, in union, moved proposed one-off payments to base salary increases, so future increases will be in addition to first year increases.

The salary increases achieve the Lifting Learning objective of recognising the importance of ESP (support staff) to schools, colleges and student learning.
