Ready for promotion?

Plan Ahead

The first step is to check whether you are eligible to apply for promotion under the Academic Promotion Guidelines.

Familiarise yourself with the relevant guidelines, the Academic Promotions Policy and the Academic Staff Performance Expectations and Outcomes (ASPEO) Framework on which performance is assessed.

Discuss your intention to apply for promotion with your Line Manager. Ideally this will occur as part of your performance planning and review discussions, where you set your goals for the year(s) ahead and review your achievements for the past year (see Managing your performance).

You are encouraged to seek further information and advice from your Executive Dean, Line Manager, or colleagues who have successfully achieved promotion in prior years. If you have any questions regarding the policy or process, please email academicpromotion@ecu.edu.au.

Attend an information session

Prospective applicants are highly encouraged to attend an applicant information session. The Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor presents promotion to Level C or D information sessions. The Vice-Chancellor presents the Promotion to Level E information session. These sessions will inform you about any key changes to the promotions policy and process, and how to increase your chances for a positive promotion outcome. Information Sessions for 2019 are now closed, please see the Downloads section on the right for a copy of the presentation.

Develop your case

With reference to the ASPEO Framework, gather evidence and material to support your case for promotion and then complete the relevant online form via the ECU Employment Opportunities application system (links provided below) including attachments.

Please note: If you have already set up an account on the ECU Employment Opportunities website, you can use your existing login details when you apply for Academic Promotion.

All applicants are required to upload an Academic CV as part of their application. An example template below has been provided to assist you, please note that use of this template for your CV is NOT compulsory. Level C and D applicants must also obtain two referee reports (one external to ECU) on the template below.

Building an Academic CV

Need help to get a good CV together? This workshop will guide academic staff to produce an effective CV that will give them a better chance of being successful in their application by clearly showcasing their qualifications, skill set and experience to the best advantage. During the workshop there will be opportunities for practice and feedback, so please bring three paper copies of your current CV. To attend, please register online.
