Ongoing employment

Qualified Technical Officers (QTOs) employed under the department's Technical Officer Development Scheme transition from the Scheme into ongoing positions.  The aim is to provide the QTOs with fair and equitable opportunities to compete for positions on merit.  This will result in both progression of careers and an exit from the Technical Officer Development Scheme.  Progression and development in the first year of working within the South Australian Public Sector is generally subject to completing requirements of a 12 month probationary period.
