Process and timeline
The development process will have three phases.
Phase 1: conceptual
In this phase, we are exploring existing concepts and considering new ideas. This is the phase we are currently in.
This phase includes teacher-only day discussions facilitated by principals and worksite representatives.
Phase 2: testing
We’ll be analysing possible models to consider pros and cons and what changes could work for us. This phase will start in term 2, 2017.
Phase 3: refining
We’ll fine-tune a potential new framework so that it works for everyone in every setting.
Once the development process is finished members will get to have their say on the final model. This will include deciding what claims we take into negotiations for our collective agreements to introduce the new framework.

NZEI members will have an opportunity to engage with the career framework development over the 18 months.
