Victorian TAFE professors at dual-sector universities are subject to the following dual-sectoral agreements: “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 prepared to allow TAFE CEOs to undermine the [agreement].” Several TAFE institutes met last week to ask the Fair Work Commission to amend the text of the multi-company agreement they signed last October to clarify that the assessment carried out during the teaching period should not be taken into account in the course hours. Victorian TAFE teachers in autonomous institutes are subject to the Victorian TAFE Teaching Staff Agreement 2018 (MEA 2018). “For TAFE institutes, this is a lack of respect for TAFE professors and it is a blatant grip after more hours of classes to achieve increased productivity of AEU members, which has never been agreed,” said the union`s Victorian branch, Meredith Peace. 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.” Federation University, Victoria University, Swinburne University and RMIT TAFIl did not join the other institutes in rewriting the company agreement. 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. “Some teachers do 35 [hours of attendance per week] in Bendigo Kangan,” the professor said. We have created webinars to help them implement and make statements of agreement. Click below and searh for TAFE-specific training to access these recordings.

Where a company agreement is in operation, the premium does not apply. A teacher at the Bendigo Kangan Institute, who requested anonymity, said that after the move, attendance hours increased from an average of 21 hours per week, as stipulated in the company agreement, to 27 to 30 hours of teaching time for many teachers. . . .
