The survey covers 30+ positions which are unique to the independent schools sector. Positions in the 2020/21 survey will include the Head or Principal, as well as their main direct reports such as Heads of Junior, Middle and Senior Schools; and Deputy Head positions. Academic specialist roles such as Director of Curriculum (Teaching/Learning), Director of Boarding, Director of Pastoral Care were included as well as senior non-academic roles such as Directors of HR, IT and Marketing; and the role of Business Manager/CFO. Examples of middle-level roles would include Heads of Department, Library, Accountants, IT professionals, Payroll Manager, Secretary to the Headmaster and Heads of Grounds and Facilities.  Information on remuneration, benefits, cars and working arrangements such as length of leave will also be collected and analysed to ensure valid comparisons can be made.

The survey will be published in late September this year after all participating schools and colleges have completed their data submissions for analysis.  Last year 177 schools and colleges across Australia contributed to the product and this provided sound  sample sizes for each different survey role. The benefits of this unique offering is that it will enable participating schools and colleges to benchmark remuneration for all non-Award roles by just contributing to one product, rather than having to purchase a special independent schools survey as well as a general industry survey. Remuneration often varies by the size of the organisation, as well as the State/Territory where the position is based; and comprehensive tables and charts are also included for each position. There is no doubt that the information in this survey will be instrumental in assisting Independent Schools set and review salaries for senior staff; and will be an invaluable source of information throughout the year.

The Argent Group will be contacting Independent Schools by way of a mailing campaign which will commence in July and we will start gathering remuneration information from participating schools during July and August this year.
