Area Schools Accord Teacher-Only Days

The June 2019 Accord between NZEI, PPTA and the Ministry allowed for eight teacher-only days in the course of the collective agreements. 

Both NZEI and PPTA members work in Area Schools. There are different approaches to the use of the teacher only days in the primary and secondary sectors. 

PPTA members will use the eight days to attend the mandated secondary sector NCEA change days. 

NZEI members will be using the days to work on curriculum changes in the context of local priorities following consultation with the school community. 

There will be eight days allowed for teacher-only days during the term of the collective. These eight days will not extend the school year. 

The days are not the only PLD teachers are entitled to.
