PRB 2013 : Satisfaction relative des enseignants

Le rapport du Pay Research Bureau apporte quelques changements qui vont satisfaire les enseignants dont les Teachers/Senior Teachers qui vont bénéficier d’un increment dans l’immédiat et un autre pour l’année financière suivante.  Cependant, ce rapport ne répond pas aux aspirations des enseignants du primaire quant à une rationalisation de leurs salaires par rapport aux salaires de leurs confrères du secondaire.  Nous avions proposé l’alignement des salaires compte tenu de certains critères spécifiques tels que qualifications et responsabilités pour que le PRB procède à un tel exercice. Or, il semble que le PRB n’a pas voulu innover et cela représente une banqueroute d’idées au niveau de cette institution.

Nos attentes que le PRB vienne de l’avant avec des idées innovatrices telles que la revalorisation des enseignants en rehaussant leur statut et leurs responsabilités de même que leurs qualifications – pourquoi pas des gradués au niveau du primaire -ont été vaines. Pourquoi le PRB n’a pas pris l’exemple de ce qui se passe dans les pays scandinaves où l’enseignant recruté avec un degré de base peut aspirer à atteindre de plus hauts échelons jusqu’à même terminer sa carrière au niveau du secondaire.

Les enseignants (Teachers/Senior Teachers qui avaient bénéficié de deux increments  pour long service dans le passé mais qui n’ont eu aucune promotion, bénéficieront d’une allocation mensuelle équivalent d’un increment dans l’immédiat (Rec : 1 Para 22.15 P. 295). Pour les enseignants détenteurs du Diploma in Educational Management, promus au poste de DHT ou de DHM ils bénéficieront d’un increment après avoir assumé ces postes et d’un deuxième increment durant l’année financière suivante. Idem pour ceux qui seront promus directement Head  Master et ceux sont détenteurs du Diploma in Educational Management.

La mise en application des recommandations du PRB qui nécessitera un somme de Rs. 4,8 milliards aura des répercussions économiques positives et pourrait même stimuler l’économie et pousser le taux de croissance à une augmentation de 0,5% et aider à l’allègement de la pauvreté. Cependant, ces nouvelles propositions salariales amèneront les bénéficiaires d’être fichés sur la liste d’imposables par la Mauritius Revenue Authority.

Recommendation 1

22.15 We recommend that incumbents in the grades of Teacher/Senior Teacher and Teacher/Senior Teacher (Oriental Languages) who, after  having benefitted from two long service increments and stagnated for a  year, should, thereafter, be paid a monthly allowance equivalent to one  increment at the salary point reached provided that the incumbents (i)  have been consistently efficient and effective in their performance as evidenced by their Performance Appraisal Report during the preceding two years; and (ii) have not been adversely reported upon on ground of  conduct.

Recommendation 2

22.20 We recommend that : (i) Teacher/Senior Teachers and Teacher/Senior Teachers (Oriental  Languages) who have successfully completed the Diploma in   Educational Management should be granted, on promotion to the grade of Deputy Head Master or Deputy Head Teacher (Oriental Languages), one increment over and above the salary they are  entitled to on joining the higher grade AND another increment on  the incremental date of the next financial year provided that they have been consistently efficient and effective in their performance, as evidenced by their Performance Appraisal Report, during the preceding year and have not been adversely reported upon on ground of conduct;

ii) Teacher/Senior Teachers who have successfully completed the Diploma in Educational Management should be granted, when promoted directly to the grade of Head Master, one increment over and above the salary they would be entitled to on joining the higher grade AND another increment on the incremental date of the next financial year provided that they have been consistently efficient and effective in their performance as evidenced by their Performance Appraisal Report, during the preceding year and have not been adversely reported upon on ground of conduct;

(iii) Deputy Head Masters as well as Deputy Head Teachers (Oriental Languages) in post as at 30 June 2008, should benefit from one increment on obtention of the Diploma in Educational Management AND another increment on the incremental date of the next financial year provided that they have been consistently efficient and effective in their performance, as evidenced by their Performance Appraisal Report, during the preceding year and have not been adversely reported upon on ground of conduct AND be allowed to move incrementally over and above their top salary by the corresponding number of increments as defined above;

(iv) Deputy Head Masters as well as Deputy Head Teachers (Oriental Languages) in post as at 30 June 2008, possessing the Certificate in Educational Management (CEM) on obtention of the Diploma in Educational Management (DEM), should, on a personal basis, qualify for one increment and be allowed to move over and above their top salary by one increment provided that they have drawn their revised top salary for a year; and

(v) Mentors and Health and Physical Education Instructors should, on obtention of the Diploma in Educational Management, be granted one increment and, after having stagnated on their top salary for a year, be allowed to move by one additional increment over and above their top salary AND, on promotion to the grade of Head Master, benefit from another additional increment over and above the salary they would be entitled to.

22.21 We also recommend that Teacher/Senior Teachers and Teacher/Senior Teachers (Oriental Languages) possessing a Teacher.s Diploma (Primary) in addition to holding an Advanced Certificate in Education should proceed incrementally in their salary scale up to salary point Rs 32100 in the master salary scale.

Head Master

22.22 In our last Report, recommendation was made for a change in the mode of appointment to the grade of Head Master, from promotion to selection such that appointment be made from among Deputy Head Masters, Mentors, Health & Physical Education Instructors possessing the Diploma in Educational Management as well as Teacher/Senior Teachers and Educators (Primary) possessing a Diploma and reckoning at least 18 years. teaching experience or possessing a degree and reckoning at least 12 years. teaching experience. As the Diploma in Educational Management has become a requirement, a transition period was needed to allow incumbents to acquire this qualification. However, the above recommendation was deferred, following a decision of the High Powered Committee to allow vacancies in the grade of Head Master to be filled on the basis of the scheme of service existing as at 30 June 2008. In the Errors, Omissions and Clarifications of the 2008 PRB Report, recommendation was made for the Diploma in Educational Management to be a requirement for appointment to the grade of Head Master with effect from 1 July 2012.

22.23 The present scheme of service for the post of Head Master does not make provision for the Diploma in Educational Management as a requirement and this was a matter of dispute before the Conciliation Service of the Ministry of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms which advised that a new scheme of service for the post of Head Master should be prescribed in line with the PRB 2008 recommendation inclusive of the DEM qualifications.

22.24 Pending the finalisation of the scheme of service for the post Head Master and considering the need for proper manning and smooth running of primary schools, appointment to the grade of Head Master should continue to be made on the basis of the scheme of service prevailing as at 30 June 2008 and we recommend accordingly.

“Zones d’Education Prioritaires” (ZEP)

22.25 In 2003, schools which, for the previous five years, recorded a pass rate of less than 40% for the CPE examinations were classified as ZEP schools. At present, there are 30 such schools including one in Rodrigues and two in Agalega.

22.26 The teaching as well as the non-teaching staff of these schools are paid a monthly allowance in view of the extra effort which they have to put in for the education of the children. We are revising the quantum of this allowance.

Recommendation 3

22.27 We recommend that the monthly ZEP allowance payable to the staff of ZEP schools should be revised as hereunder:

Grade

Monthly ZEP Allowance (Rs)

Head Master 3630
Mentor 3410
Deputy Head Master          Deputy Head Teacher (Oriental Languages) 3190

Recommendation 5

22.31 We recommend that Trainee Educators (Primary) should, henceforth, be refunded travelling expenses incurred by bus from residence to the place of work/training and back.
