Clarifications on CoPE Sessions in Sectoral Agreement
The MUT is receiving feedback regarding misinterpretations of the clauses relating to the Community of Professional Educators (CoPE) in the Sectoral Agreement, particularly the 40 hours management-driven CoPE time (clause 17.2). The MUT would like to point out these 40 hours of CoPE sessions should be:
– during normal working hours;
– training should be provided or organised by management, such as SMT or directly from MEDE as outlined in the Agreement;
– no fees should be charged to educators to participate.
Queries and difficulties should be directed to the MUT through the usual channels.
