All staff are asked to check and update their qualifications as well as review the currency of their personal details in Staff Connect, ahead of the census date on 31 March.
Accurate recording of your qualifications is important for the university for census reporting to the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (along with other government agencies), university rankings and the registration and accreditation for various university courses and programs.
We understand it can be easy to overlook keeping your employee record up to date, so we’re asking all staff to take a few moments to review and where needed, update your qualifications to assist us with reporting accurate and current data.
At the same time, we encourage you to take the opportunity to check that your personal details are up to date (such as address, phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc). The accuracy of this information is important for the smooth running of university processes and in the event of an emergency or incident.
You will find information below to assist you in updating your qualifications and personal details.
Staff are asked to update their qualifications as appropriate before 31 March 2020.
Check your qualifications in Staff Connect
1. To add/update your qualifications or even delete qualifications, you will need to use the Request update to Qualifications form in Service Central. This is because the university is required to validate all claimed qualifications, certifications and accreditations relevant to a staff member’s position, through a confirmation or verification process.
Check your personal details in Staff Connect
1. To change your details, click the ‘Update’ button and update the information as required.
2. When you enter the postcode in the 'Home Address' and 'Postal Address' sections, Staff Connect will automatically populate the Suburb, State and Country for Australia and New Zealand. If there is no match, you can enter the details manually (please don’t include a comma in your address details to avoid additional administration).
3. Click the ‘Save’ button.
Note: Some personal details, such as your name, gender, and date of birth, cannot be modified in Staff Connect. If you wish to update these details complete the Request to Update Personal Details form in Service Central.
If you need further help, you can visit Service Central for step by step instructions and links to the Staff Connect User Guides.
