The Ministry of Education, NZEI Te Riu Roa and NZSTA have developed a Pay Equity Working Matrix Guide to support the implementation of the TAPE comparison. This work matrix guide can be used for creating a new teacher-help role, for annual performance evaluations, and if a teacher-Help requests a grade check. The amendments came into force in December 2019 with the collective agreements. The NZSTA recommends that schools and kura work with their teachers to ensure preparation for the transition to the new pay equity rates. This was a positive and collective effort with the ministry and NZEI Te Riu Roa, and we are working to develop guidance, resources, tools and support for all those responsible for running the school. In this case, they translate to Work Matrix Step B5.
