Under the Education Act, local authorities must provide for teachers` needs and help educational institutions find staff. Starting in 2018, teachers will have the opportunity to apply for an education grant. The purpose of the grant is to enable education practitioners to contribute to the development of education more broadly than their profession allows and demands. The scholarship offers a teacher the opportunity to use a free semester, for example. B for cooperation with a university, vocational training abroad or temporary employment in the definition of education policies. Applications are made for the grant. Negotiator Virginia Oakly says she is pleased that the educators have received a significant pay increase and that hard work continues to improve pay and conditions for the rest of the early childhood sector. Teacher vacancies are filled by competitions whose conditions are approved by the school board. Teachers work on the basis of employment contracts. The head of the school concludes, amends and terminates employment contracts with teachers in accordance with labour laws and other legislation regulating teachers` working relationships.
Employment contracts are concluded for an indeterminate period. An employment contract can only be concluded in exceptional cases for a specified period of time: when a teacher does not have the required qualifications or is recruited as a substitute. A teacher may have separate employment contracts to work in different educational institutions, provided that his workload remains within the limits set for teachers. Specialized teachers who can work in primary, high school, vocational and leisure schools have the best mobility opportunities. If certain requirements are met, it is also possible for a teacher to work at a vocational school, university or university. A collective agreement is a voluntary agreement between workers (or a workers` union) and an employer (or employer union) and governs labour relations between workers and employers. A collective agreement can also be concluded with the central government or the local government. A collective agreement determines additional labour relations that are not regulated by the state or establishes contractual standards that are more favourable than the legal standards of the state. A collective agreement may set out wage conditions, working conditions, working time and leave, conditions for suspension, modification and termination of the employment contract, conditions of professional, professional and retraining service, as well as other guarantees and allowances that the contracting parties consider necessary.
