CLA agreements for training
The collective labor agreement for MBO stipulates that teaching staff is entitled to 'training that is necessary to be able to perform their duties properly'. Those who work in the classroom are entitled to 59 hours of professionalization, and can derive rights from the training budget or plan of the education team. The employer must reimburse the employee for all costs if ordered. The employer must also provide study leave of up to three-quarters of the study load of the course or study program. If it concerns a request from the employee that is in the interest of the institution, 50 to 75 percent of the study costs will be reimbursed. Study leave then depends on 'the interests of the institution' and amounts to a maximum of one day per week.
