Management under the National Project on the Quality of
Teaching and Learning (NPQTL).
(b) The union advised that its agreement to implementation of the proposals would be contingent upon a commitment by the Department of Education and Training for full resourcing in terms of additional staffing and provision of training, and a commensurate increase in pay rates to those staff responsible for implementation.
