2018 Queensland School Sport State Team Officials

 

The process for appointing state team officials has been under review and a new process will be adopted for 2018 appointments. The changes will result in team officials being appointed by a selection panel, rather than a state-wide ballot, who will give careful consideration to the following:

  • The individuals online application - this has replaced the former 'Form B' application form

  • Principal endorsement (or equivalent) - this has replaced the former 'Form A' application form

  • Sport specific committee, Regional School Sport Officer and Queensland School Sport endorsement

 

The timeline for the appointment of QSS Team Officials for 2018 will be as follows:

  • Thursday 7 September 2017 - applications open
  • Thursday 5 October 2017 - applications close
  • Monday 9 October 2017 - QSSU staff provide a list of all applicants to sport specific committee executives
  • Monday 30 October - sport specific committee feedback due to QSS Unit
  • Friday 10 November 2017 - QSS Selection Panel meet
  • Friday 17 November 2017 - sport specific committees and all applicants are informed of appointments (after which a list of appointed QSS State Team Officials will be uploaded onto the QSS website)

  • Preference should be given to suitably qualified, practising, registered teachers. Non-teacher officials must provide evidence of holding a current Blue Card. 
  • At least one official appointed to each team must be a registered teacher.
