17. Supervisor

17.1  'Supervisor' means the nominated person who provides direction to the staff member on behalf of the University.

17.2  Each staff member will have a nominated supervisor and will be advised in writing of the position of that person. The supervisor of an academic staff member will normally be the head of the academic unit in which the staff member is employed, and University policy will prescribe how alternative supervisors (at least at Level C or above) for academic staff can be appointed. The College Head (or delegate such as the School Director) may be regarded as the supervisor in instances of managing underperformance and misconduct.

17.3  The University will provide appropriate training for supervisors.
