PPTA – Interim details of IES agreement

PPTA logoInterim details of IES agreement as detailed by PPTA are as follows:
IES has changed significantly from the original cabinet proposal. The bottom lines identified by members as essential to the process have all been met.

Key points:

Role A (formerly Executive Principal) is now the Community of Schools Leadership role.

Role B (formerly Expert Teacher) is now the Community of Schools Teacher (across community) role.

Role C (formerly Lead Teacher) is now the Community of Schools Teacher (within school) role.

The job functions for the above roles are as agreed in the Working Party Report:
(see Ministry of Education website Investing in Educational Success: design and implementation)

1. Community of Schools Teacher (across schools)

• $16,000 per annum, 10 hours per week (which may be timetabled weekly or used in
blocks of time throughout the year).
• Minimum teaching contact time of 8 hours per week
• Access for unit holders (up to two permanent MUs)
• Fixed-term, 2+2 years
• $750 direct PLD funding per teacher per year (tagged funding in the school’s operations
grant)

2. Community of Schools Teacher (within schools)

• $8000 per annum
• Minimum teaching contact time of 16 hours per week (12 hours per week for part-time
teachers)
• Access for unit holders (up to two permanent MUs)
• Mostly permanent roles, up to 40% can be allocated on a fixed-term basis (same as
units)
• $400 per year per role for PLD
• An additional 2 hours of non-contact time per week (which may be timetabled weekly or
used in blocks of time throughout the year).

Provision has been made for secondary schools to form Communities of Schools (CoS) where there is no natural grouping with primary schools.

There is provision for a senior teacher who is not a principal to be appointed to the Community of Schools Leadership position where this is appropriate for the Community of Schools (CoS).

Acting up allowances will be paid to teachers who pick up duties transferred from other teachers who are appointed to CoS roles.

There is also provision for members to apply for the Teacher Led Innovation Fund and PPTA will be involved in the development of a formula to allocate inquiry time into schools.
