Kāhui Ako Responsibility allowances
From the start of 2024 kāhui ako schools have the option of converting some fixed term WST roles into more flexible allowances for:
i. promoting effective teaching practice within the school, and
ii. strengthening the use of effective approaches to teaching and learning to achieve shared Kāhui Ako objectives
iii. recognising Kahui Ako-related responsibilities undertaken by teachers (other than principals) who are not Kāhui Ako Teachers (within school).
Each Kāhui Ako Teacher (within school) role that is converted will provide:
i. Two Kāhui Ako Responsibility time allowances of 0.04 FTTE; and
ii. Four Kāhui Ako Responsibility salary allowances of $2,000
Advice on the requirements for using these allowances is in part 4.23 of the STCA and in the advice on the 2023-25 STCA settlement
