The MUT is involved in discussions with the Education Ministry and MATSEC regarding the changes to VET subjects. Whilst initial changes were announced by MATSEC through a dedicated circular at the start of the scholastic year, there are plans for changes which would render VET subjects more in line with requirements of MATSEC for other subjects. The union shall update members in the following weeks. Meanwhile the following directive (D211222A) remains in force:
– The MUT reminds all educators about the directive in force. All educators are directed to refrain from scanning or copying VET material to be provided through digital means to MATSEC. As already stated, this is clearly beyond the duties of educators.
