Group B contractual arrangements for 2020
Documents are being prepared to offer extensions to current Group B providers for their existing Vocational Student Placement Deeds to be extended to 21 December 2021. Group B Deeds will then have the same end date as existing Group A Deeds.
A full review of the contractual instrument and supporting documents is proposed for 2020. Further information regarding the review will be provided early in the new year.
What does this mean?
- In the week commencing 18 November 2019, offers to extend will be sent to existing Group B providers, along with a Deed of Variation (DoV). This DoV only extends the end date of the Deed - no other terms of the Deeds will change.
- If the offer to extend is accepted by providers, contract documents will be signed by the Queensland Health delegate. Once the document is signed, changes to Deed end dates will be made on the "List of education providers with current Deeds" page on the clinical placements website.
- Until these documents are signed and the dates changed (indicating extension to the existing Deed arrangements), Schedules are unable to be completed for Group B providers past their current end date.
- Applications for new Group B providers will be offered under the current Group B Deed provisions and with an end date of 31 December 2019 (regardless of Deed commencement date). New applications will be taken from 1 December 2019.
Group A Schedules are unaffected and can be negotiated, completed, and signed by the appropriate delegate.
