A brief introduction to the government’s proposed global budget bulk funding model for New Zealand schools
Salary bulk funding is a single pool of money from which salaries and other costs have to be met.
Within that one budget teachers can be ‘cashed-up’.
Bulk funding is not about who sets salary rates, whether there is a collective agreement or whether the salaries are paid centrally or directly by schools. There may be impacts on these of a bulk funding model, but it is about whether schools have to make choices between teaching positions or money.
The global budget model is bulk funding. There would be a single pool of money for schools from which they are to pay salary and other costs. Within that one budget teaching positions can be ‘cashed-up’.
The government's renewed attempt to propose bulk funding would mean all staffing and school operational funding would be delivered to schools on a per-student basis in the form of cash and “credits” for staffing.
