Teachers Minister Peter Hall shared a tougher approach to annual progress by announcing a « new rigorous framework for teacher performance and development » on October 8. He also stated that teacher evaluations would not be influenced by the proportion of teachers and support staff they felt was in line with expectations. Currently, more than 16,000 teachers are at the top of the ladder, unable to achieve a higher increment without being promoted. ELAA believes that the proposed VECTEA offers a balanced approach for teachers, educators and early childhood providers, according to a statement from the association, which states that the proposed agreement is now reached by the government with regard to adequate funding. The Federal Office of the AEU keeps tables that show the current and immediate future salaries of teachers in schools and TPEs across Australia. They are collected from different enterprise agreements or industrial bonuses for teachers. Click below to see salaries: For the first time in a generation, we have a proposal for an agreement that takes important steps in the charge and contracts. ELAA agreed on substantial improvements for teachers and educators, « recognizing the importance of maintaining and attracting quality staff and thus supporting the dedicated work of service providers at an early age. » The union says the ministry`s instructions are aimed at implementing a new performance and development process, in violation of clause 13, paragraph 3, of the agreement. 2020 is the year in which we will begin negotiations for a new agreement establishing your remuneration and terms. In what the union says, the unilateral imposition of a quota, Hall stated that « in a typical school, the coalition government expects that between 60 percent and 80 percent of teachers » would get a successful performance evaluation and thus progression. It includes headteachers, assistant principals, teachers and teaching assistants employed by the Ministry of Education (DET). « This means that of the 24,000 teachers eligible for progress last year, only 28 did not receive a promotion. » The VECTEA agreement is an important enterprise agreement that governs the sector sector of the Victorian community.

The highlights of the 2016 negotiations the last time the agreement was reached, as found by the AEU, included an annual salary increase of 3 per cent, 15 days off for co-educators and pay parity with teachers at the higher level of early childhood teachers (representing an additional 13 per cent) and pay parity with teachers at the lower level of early childhood teachers (equivalent to 8 additional per cent). In recent discussions, the ELAA stated that the proposed agreement « focuses on quality outcomes for the early childhood sector, improving the salaries and conditions of teachers and educators and giving employers greater capacity to manage their workforce. » « Last year, 99.8 per cent of teachers received a pay increase, but only 70 per cent of our students get good learning growth each year, » said Minister Hall at the time. The AEU accuses the Ministry of Education of violating the recently adopted agreement on Victorian public schools by ordering principals to more rigorously determine which teachers and facilitators met the criteria for progress, including setting a cap for those who move to the next level, without consulting the union beforehand.
