Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu Early Childhood teachers

Most early childhood teachers employed by Te Aho o te Kura Pounamu will be covered by:

You are covered by the Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu Early Childhood Teachers’ Collective Agreement if your work is covered by this agreement, and you’re a member of the teachers’ union, the New Zealand Educational Institute – NZEI Te Riu Roa (NZEI).

You need to sign an individual employment agreement (IEA) if your work is covered by this agreement but you are not a member of the NZEI. Your IEA will be Ministry promulgated, which means the Ministry of Education develops and approves the IEA. The terms and conditions of your work are similar to the collective agreement.

To confirm your work is covered by this agreement you can read the full coverage text from the Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu Early Childhood Teachers’ Collective Agreement, clause 1.4 and clause 1.7.

We've published the Collective Agreements as PDF's and as web pages. If you have any queries or would like an accessible copy of these Collectives, please contact employment.relations@education.govt.nz.
