The Advanced Classroom Expertise Teacher (ACET) allowance recognises a classroom teacher whose practice is demonstrably higher than the experienced teacher professional standards. ACET was introduced as part of the settlement of the Primary Teachers’ Collective Agreement 2013-2015 (PTCA). ACET recognition is based on eligibility and professional criteria agreed between the Ministry of Education and the New Zealand Educational Institute Te Riu Roa as part of that settlement.
An ACET recognised teacher receives an ongoing additional allowance of $5,000 per annum, paid fortnightly.
