Teachers who are working in State Government non school based teaching service (NSBTS) positions remain members of the NSW Teachers Federation. The Federation association for these members is the Officers, Consultants and Advisers Association (OCAA).
OCAA is a state-wide association within the rules of the NSW Teachers Federation. The association provides a particular voice within the Federation regarding the interests of non school based teaching service members.
NSBTS members may, if they choose, request to join their local area schools association rather than OCAA. This must occur in writing, addressed to the General Secretary, NSW Teachers Federation.
Further information regarding OCAA, the association, contacts, working conditions and being a Federation Representative is available under the menu on the left of this page and from the My Work – OCAA link at the top of each web page on the Federation website.
