A tool offers teams support in the division of labor in secondary vocational education

Every year it is a tough puzzle that MBO teams have to solve: the division of labor. Who will carry out which lessons and tasks and how many hours are available for this. The AOb has therefore developed a handy folder and tool with which you can calculate your stake and follow a step-by-step plan with the entire team. “We hope to help the teams get started with this,” says AObsector manager Hélène Jansen.

Several teams in MBO are struggling with task policy and the division of work, Jansen notices. “We received several questions about it and are therefore together with active members and consultants the leaflet going to make. This should really help to keep the team moving, as agreed in the collective labor agreement. ”

It has become more complicated, Jansen admits. For example, there are from the collective labor agreement agreements were made for starting teachers and instructors. They are entitled to a number of hours per week for their study plan, so that they can obtain their diploma. Teams have to take this into account.

Replacement

According to Jansen, it is important in advance to be clear about what replacement there is for a colleague who is going on maternity leave or applying for parental leave and older colleagues who are taking their senior leave. “That must first be mapped out: the short-term and structural replacements must be arranged. It is good if, for example, two people from the team discuss this with a manager, with the leaflet there, so that this is clear. ”

'The nice thing about dividing the tasks with a team is that you can say which task you like that a colleague hates'

Then teams can divide tasks. In the leaflet there is a step-by-step plan that they can use to start the conversation. Rob Römer, teacher and timetable maker at Roc Friese Poort, has also developed a tool in Excel, the bet meter, in which all MBO teachers and instructors can see their hours. Jansen: "It is very handy, for example, to divide the tasks with your team for an afternoon, where everyone takes their laptop and fills in that meter."

Check your bet

In bet meter you can fill in exactly what applies: is it a full-time job or a part-time job and you have extra leave, such as parental leave or seniority leave. You enter this and the tool calculates exactly how many hours you can be deployed on an annual basis.

In MBO, two things are important for the hours standard: the 1200 clock hours for lessons and the remaining 459 hours for non-lesson-related tasks, such as open days, training and meetings. After completing the form, you can see in the tool exactly where you are working too many hours or how much you can still be deployed.

You can also fill in the number of hours for open days and work placement or training co-ordination. “The nice thing about dividing the tasks with a team is that you can say which task you like that a colleague hates,” says Jansen. "That way you can distribute it well." Starting teachers benefit from this, because they can also clearly see the number of hours they can use for a study plan in the effort meter.

Teams often only see the entire overview of hours when everything has been entered in the rosters. The information is therefore not yet complete during the consultation about the division of labor. The AOb hopes that the deployment meter and the folder will help teams on their way to providing insight in advance. Jansen: “We hope that the division of tasks will become easier. It will be difficult the first time, but I really hope that teams get to work on it. ”
