De AOb considers the involvement of teachers to be crucial in the development of the NP Onderwijs. For example, participation councils or works councils must agree to the school program in which everything is described. The AOb developed useful guidelines for mrs and ors in every education sector.
For example, the AOb in the guides for it primary education en secondary education to prevent the money from leaking into commercial -often expensive- tutoring agencies. Schools can better focus on the own expertise of the staff so that it is about sustainable development and the expertise is kept in the school.
In manual for secondary vocational education, the hbo and the science education&research the union refers to the education team. The teaching staff must know in advance how much money is available and in what period. The works council or employee participation council must provide this clarity. In these sectors, part of the money is structural because of the increased numbers of students.
Structural money needed
In addition, the . emphasizes AOb in general that it concerns incidental money and major problems such as the high workload and the teacher shortage cannot be solved with this. Structural investments are necessary for this, the union believes. In addition, the . emphasizes AOb time and again that the time frame - currently two years - is too tight to spend the money.
Uit the first progress report of the ministry showed that half of all primary schools think they will run into problems with the implementation of the NP Onderwijs. This is due to a shortage on the labor market and the lack of structural financing.
In the report, a large majority of school leaders also indicated that they involved their teacher teams in all choices. Not all mr's have agreed yet, but the expectation of the ministry is that they will do so soon. Has your school or institution not yet given its approval? Then be alert to this. Education teams that notice that they are under-involved can contact the help desk from the ministry.
Bonus disadvantaged schools
Outgoing minister Slob temporarily rewards employees at disadvantaged schools with a bonus. The AOb has strongly criticized this arrangement and director Thijs Roovers called it a 'Slobloss'. It offers no structural solution to the teacher shortage and the problem is only shifted. In addition, the consent of the staff section of the participation council (pmr) should also apply in primary and secondary education, but the ministry persistently insists that the consent of the staff section of the joint participation council (p)gmr (participation at board level within a school board) ) in primary education is sufficient. As a result, the choice can be made that this money, intended for staff at disadvantaged schools, is spread over all schools under one board.
