Disciplinary Tribunal

Hearing Schedule

Please note that dates and times are subject to change, occasionally with little or no notice.

A hearing on the papers means that there is no actual hearing. Rather, the two parties involved (the teacher and the CAC) make their submissions and give evidence in writing. The Tribunal issues a written decision after reading the submissions and evidence. It is common for a scheduled hearing to become a hearing on the papers without notice.

The Tribunal may make an order for all or parts of a hearing to be private, in which case only those directly involved in the hearing (such as the teacher, lawyers and advocates, Tribunal members and witnesses) are able to attend.

Guidelines for the media and public can be found on this web page in pdf format. It is important that any media personnel or member of the public attending a Tribunal hearing read these guidelines.

The Practice Notes on this page outline the procedures for any applications for name suppression, and Tribunal procedures around costs.
