Area school principals to vote on MoE offer

Area school principals to vote on Ministry of Education offer

30 August 2019
Principals and tumuaki in area schools and wharekura who are jointly represented by NZEI Te Riu Roa and PPTA Te Wehengarua will vote on whether to ratify a settlement to their collective agreement over the coming days.

The offer from the Ministry of Education is in line with the settlement accepted by secondary school principals earlier this week.

A significant part of the settlement would see area school principals / tumuaki have access to a new category of sabbatical leave, 'Te Rau Titoki', which is designed to give principals time to focus on undertaking community responsibilities, outside of leading their school, that are integral to their principal role.

There are 136 area schools and wharekura in New Zealand.

What’s in the settlement for Area School principals?

• The merging of U1 and U2 rates of pay which will give U1 principals an increase in the roll-based component of their remuneration of 12.5% from 20 August 2019. For U2-U16 principals, their roll-based remuneration would increase by 3%. In addition to this the staffing-based component (TTS) will increase by 3%
• For the remainder of the term, an increase of 3% in 2020 and a further increase of 3% 2021 would be applied to roll-based component and to the staffing-based component (TTS).
• An increase to the base rate of the Area School Principals’ Payment
• A lump sum payment of $500 for union members.
• In 2022 the overall number of sabbaticals would increase from 10 to 13.
• Area school principals would be included as part of the accord between NZEI Te Riu Roa, PPTA Te Wehengarua and the Ministry of Education.
• The term would be 3 years from 6 September 2019 to 5 September 2022.

Gordon Campbell: On Why The Dice Are Loaded Against Women In Public Life

If they enter public life, women can expect a type of intense (and contradictory) scrutiny that is rarely applied to their male counterparts. If they are relatively young and conventionally attractive, such women will tend to be written off as lightweights – yet if they’re older and obviously competent, doubts will then tend to be raised about their “electability” and whether they are “warm” and “likeable” enough to connect with voters. Too conventionally feminine or not conventionally feminine enough? Too cold and too cerebral, or too warm and flighty to be seriously considered for high public office? For women in the public spotlight, the Goldilocks moments (when things are just right) are few and far between. More>>
