Victorian Tafe Teaching Staff Agreement 2018

Federation University, Victoria University, Swinburne University and RMIT TAFIl did not join the other institutes in rewriting the company agreement. Under the current four-year corporate agreement signed last October, the time spent by a TAFE teacher in class is limited to 800 hours per year, while the time spent on class planning and assessment is limited to 400 hours. She continued: « Now that we are safe for teachers, we need to ensure that at least two-thirds of public funds earmarked for vocational training go to TAFEs. » The Bendigo Kangan Institute has already set up its staff for additional supervision of students in addition to the usual teaching tasks, which leads to more than 30 individual teacher disputes heard by the Fair Work Commission. Their actions « go against the agreed educational agreements, set out in the agreement signed by all TAFE CEOs in 2018, » Peace said. « Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews was elected with the promise that he would save TAFE, but it appears that his government does not support TAFE professors and is ready to allow TAFE CEOs to undermine [the deal]. » « This agreement puts an end to this trend and ensures that thousands of occasioned and temporary people will be offered more secure jobs. » Thousands of Victorian TAFE teachers are about to go to war with their employers, the state`s TAFE institutes, to increase their teaching load without increase. « This agreement is a huge gain for Victoria`s TAFEs and the communities that depend on it, » said Meredith Peace, President of the Victorian Branch of the AEU. .
