Teacher Aide Pay Equity Settlement Agreement

As part of the recent collective agreement for support staff in schools, a (total) fund for professional learning and teacher development, amounting to $790,000, was created. And it was agreed that access to the Fund might be necessary: the ministry agreed, in agreement with NZEI members Te Riu Roa, school leaders and other important interest groups, including parents, wh`nau and the disability sector, to review school funding for educational services. More than 22,000 school teachers were offered life-changing pay equity, including pay increases of up to 28%, according to a payment procedure launched by NZEI Te Riu Roa in 2016 with the Ministry of Education. (3) Substantial changes to the job description and/or written requirements can only be made after consultation with the teaching assistant by the employer. “All teachers go above and beyond and often work without pay to ensure that children get what they need during the school day. This means not only more money, but recognition as a profession that is worth being in the world,” she explains. The coalition government recognizes the important role that teachers play in schools and we have focused on doing a good job for them. The evidence in this trial was glaring and confirmed what we already knew — teachers have been undervalued and underpaid for decades because they are predominantly women. This proposed regulation will finally allow teachers to pay fairly and recognize their value,” he explains. As part of the implementation of this regime, current teachers will have their grades and procedures translated into these new grades. For more information on this translation process, see below. NZEI Te Riu Roa organized a series of zooms to help teachers understand the colony and answer their frequently asked questions. The Ministry of Education, NZEI Te Riu Roa and NZSTA have developed a guide to the pay equity work matrix to support the implementation of the TAPE system.

This work matrix guide can be used when they create a new role to assist the teacher, for annual performance reviews, and when an assistant requests a grade review. (3) A teaching assistant who is entitled to representation at any time may ask his employer to reconsider his salary development. Following the agreement between the ministry, NZEI Te Riu Roa and PPTA, and the issues raised during the request for assistance to teachers, the ministry began to examine how schools are funded for teacher assistance.
