The government also presented a proposal for a social contract for the professional group of teachers, including increases and changing working conditions.

PAP: What will be the priorities of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in the next four years? Minister of Science and Higher Education, Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin: One of the areas in-depth attention of the Ministry in the next few years will be issues related to teaching. While the solutions for the research took shape in my opinion satisfying, so I have a certain feeling of dissatisfaction when it comes to supporting teaching at a high level. Another priority will be to prepare the ministry – in dialogue with the scientific community – the second act of the Polish Academy of Sciences. After the emergence of university research, the PAN in its present form is threatened depreciation. And the third priority – extremely important – much more effective than in the past several years, the use of the Polish scholars opportunities associated with the EU framework programs – now it will be Europe horizon.

It’s for us so important that the budgetary situation is quite tense. The more important is the power of science European funds. In addition, participation in grants as part of the Horizon Europe will increase the presence of Polish science in an international environment. And this is one of the main objectives set by the ministry itself and more ambitious part of the scientific community. PAP: What you want to do to improve the quality of teaching at universities? J.G. .: Opportunity, which we predicted in the Constitution for the Arts – a new nature trail, was not used by the environment. At any university not been thought out before trying to open new perspectives outstanding educators.

We observe for this phenomenon clearly negative – moving on teaching posts weak scientists. I warn that the ministry does not intend to passively watch this! In the coming months we will certainly discussed the solutions that will encourage to ensure that educational path in the good sense of the word open. And if this phenomenon will continue moving in the teaching posts of people who should not work at the university, we will introduce a change in the financial algorithm. And that makes this type of practice will be unprofitable for the university. PAP: Let’s talk about reforms Sciences. Research universities have emerged, and probably will be – thanks to large measures, which have grown – to take scientists from institutes of Sciences, even offering them better working conditions.

And the Academy’s institutes will lose it. J.G. .: This drainage has followed in recent years. Without reform of the Academy of Sciences It is undoubtedly worse. I would like to counter this, and this requires new organizational solutions. PAP: How they will look to work on a new law on the PAN? .: J.G. solutions will be created the same way as for the Doctrine of the Constitution – through broad consultations. The Ministry is already prepared for these consultations. We checked what solutions dot.

PAN institutions analogous to operate in Europe. Using the best foreign models will look good for the Polish solutions. PAP: Some time ago the Polish Academy of Sciences developed proposals on how to reform the PAN. Do they like the ministry? J.G. .: The PAN clashes several different concepts.

None of them, however, enjoys the support of the majority of the academic environment. We should also remember that the PAN is part of a broader ecosystem science. Certainly the future of PAN should decide themselves not only scholars of the Academy, but the majority of the scientific community, which is concentrated on college campuses. PAP: The third objective of the ministry of science, you talked about, it is to care for better use of European funds. What you can do resort to induce, encourage or Polish scientists can learn to reach for these measures?

J.G. .: We want to run a number of instruments to support Polish scientists in applying for these grants. An example is to be Business & Science Poland (BSP) – the institution supporting scientists and entrepreneurs in their efforts to win EU funds. Another example will redefine the action NCP Research Programs, which from January 1, will operate within the framework of the National Research and Development Center. The ministry also analyze the possibility of budgetary run various kinds of financial incentives – eg. For each of the acquired Horizon Europe million zlotys university will receive another million from the ministry.

PAP: What further laws? Is reportedly already prepared a project on tax breaks for people who study at private universities. Is this project will be discussed by Parliament? J.G. .: It requires a decision at the level of the coalition government. You can still do not recognize that some students are treated unjustly, because he has to pay for college. In addition, it is mostly young people from smaller centers from less privileged families. Those less wealthy so they pay twice: not only for their studies, but in addition to their taxes – or taxes their parents – funded studies are more affluent urban youth.

For many years, in favor of the liquidation of this blatant injustice, but I could not even get allies for this project. PAP: There are also plans to change the law on the Christian Theological Academy. J.G. .: For this project, we will definitely return. We want to change the rules for the financing of this university, which trains the elite of religious minorities. ChAT throw-in to one bag with all the other universities, the financial risk of collapse of this important institution.

And in the interest of the Polish state it is that the religious elite, spiritual were educated in Warsaw, and not, for example, in Kiev, Moscow and Berlin. PAP: From my conversations with scientists show that a big hurdle in their work is public procurement. Officials, especially at large universities, apply to the letter of the law too much – over-zealous. And through it are sometimes wasted public funds and research to delay. Previous J.G. .: parliament passed a new law the Public Procurement Law.

It will come into force only on 1 January 2021. Everyone to have time to prepare for the new rules. This bill largely takes into account the demands of the scientific community. I do not want, however, that 2020 was wasted in this regard. It should soon be presented to the interpretation of existing regulations.

It will be prepared by the Public Procurement Office, after talks with the Ministry of Business and Technology and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Today, the rules imposed on universities interpreted and applied in a manner going too far. A number of disciplines, which makes it difficult to conduct research scientists – not in our opinion, the legal basis. I hope that the interpretation will be any day now. Since I can remember, our health is in front of infarct, but the lack of doctors will lead her to the ICU. From there it is only one step in the palliative care unit. You have to invent something.

Treat there is no one in the UK, where one of the factors contributing to the lack of professionals are trips abroad. Therefore, in 2016. The then health minister Jeremy Hunt suggested that newly qualified doctors, if you would like immediately after the completion of medical studies over the Thames to go to work abroad, they would first ask Her Majesty’s Treasury costs of their education. At the height of approx. 220 thousand. pounds, or 1.1 million zł. see also increases are not enough to stop doctors »The idea of ​​the minister was not received with enthusiasm (enough to say that it is not introduced), but Hunt was not the most radical.

Further he followed his party colleague Tom Tugend hat. Even suggested the introduction of the ban several years working abroad for doctors trained in the country. He explained that there is nothing exceptional, because such rules in force in the British army. An example of even fighter pilots, who are obliged after receiving training odsłużyć 12 years. River Thames doctors in uniforms, in turn working off to the state six years. “Meanwhile, civilians whose education costs the same as the military after graduation can immediately fly to Australia for work.

It is not right “- he wrote at the end of 2015. Tugendhat. In Poland, similar solutions of his time said Jaroslaw Gowin. The introduction of tuition fees in the event of travel abroad or even work order on the Vistula River associate the worst – straight from the era depicted in “Gods”. We are dealing here with a conflict of values ​​that seem to equal the one hand, freedom of movement and the right of people to decide their own destiny. On the other – the obligations of the state towards citizens, including ensuring an adequate level of public services.

To resolve the conflict, one value must sometimes give way to the other. In the absence of doctors because we have to think about it, if he is a resource, which szafowaliśmy far too generously. Not all good (product, service or competence) in the economy because they must submit to the rules of the market. Some of them are just too valuable, because the state regulates a variety of ways to access them. For some it is artificial keeping prices low. For others it is a restriction of freedom of movement.

Perhaps the doctors and, more broadly, health professionals it is a good example of this. Of course, it would be a much better world in which this type of public intervention would not be needed. Nor do I want to suggest that this is the best solution for afflicting health care, lack of staff. On the contrary – the system for a long time and it requires a thorough reconstruction, and additional resources. For the first current government seems to have no idea. For a short time, additional measures were available – as ever since 1989! – but we decided to spend it on something else. So it recalled another quote from the “Gods”: “Please, something more difficult.

Here he could operate on the patient. ” Well, soon you will have no other choice. From 1 January 2020 the minimum wage will increase and it will be 2600 zł gross. Budżetówki Some employees earn less than this amount. Among them is the part of teachers. Ministry of Education raises their salaries.

The changes will apply to the base salary for trainee teachers and contract teachers in the second and third grade and salary for teachers appointed in the third grade płacowego.W Accordingly, the minimum base salary will be from January 1, 2020 year for the teachers trainees – in the second group the pay grade 2617 zł, – in the third grade payroll 2600 zł; See also: Highest educational subsidy in history? Check whether the minister is right Piontkovsky »contract: – in the second grade salary in 2663 zł – in the third grade salary in 2617 zł; appointed – in the third grade salary in 2638 zł.Jak says in the explanatory memorandum to the draft regulation, “thus fixed minimum rates of basic pay for the lowest salary teachers need to abolish the payment by the local government units compensatory allowance to the minimum wage.” The project is ready. On Wednesday we met with Deputy Ministers, MPs and experts to discuss it, to analyze in terms of whether it is full or properly implementing the provisions of the agreement – told PAP Minister of National Education. “We realize it, even though it has so far signed only by one compound for Solidarity. The agreement, however, apply to all teachers, regardless of their union membership” – she noted. The head of the Ministry informed that the project saved to raise teachers’ salaries by 9.6 percent. from September this year.

Including paid this year rise by 5 percent. from January this gives an increase of 15 percent. this year, and together with the April last year – by 5.3 percent. – an increase in teachers’ salaries by 20 percent. “This means an increase in the base salary of teachers in two years about 708 zł for a qualified teacher and a teacher trainee of 515 zł” – said Zalewska. The draft amendment written as the introduction of a single supplement “to start” for a teacher starting work, of 1000 zł, determine the amount of the allowance for education at the level of not less than 300 zł (currently the amount of this supplement decide local governments), changes in the system of evaluating teachers and shortening internship. “It contains also various minor changes in regulations, especially those specifying” – also added minister.zobacz: Here are all the proposals of the Ministry and what they mean in practice (which is why teachers reject them) ‘ “but focus mainly on the introduction of legislation that are the implementation of the agreement. We must implement them as soon as possible, according to the declarations “- stressed Zalewska. When asked whether, in connection with this project will go to Parliament as a government project, or will be made by PiS deputies as a project of Deputies, he said: “It will either be a project under the fast-track legislative, as was a project called. Act final award, or this project will be of Parliament. the decision will be made this week. ” “Ordinary legislative path requires a lot of time. The term adoption of the law determines the dates issue a regulation on minimum rates of pay teachers, and this Regulation should be signed at the end of July, so that local governments could get increased funds for increases for teachers and adopt new remuneration rules, so that increases were paid in September. We basically just a month and a half “- explained the Minister.

Inquired whether, in connection with the more likely it is that the project will be filed as an MP, said: “Everything points to” .See also: Polish school after the strike: With strong teachers, but no trips, homework and the same fives » in the course of negotiations with the teachers’ unions in the Social Partnership Center “Dialog” government offered nearly 15 percent. increases in 2019. Teachers (9.6 per cent. increase in September has already paid plus 5 per cent increase from January), shortening the length, determine the amount of the allowance for education at the level of not less than 300 zł, a change in the system of evaluation of teachers and reducing the bureaucracy. The government also presented a proposal for a social contract for the professional group of teachers, including increases and changing working conditions. It proposed wage increase next year for teachers certified by an average of 250 zł, combined with an increase in teaching load by 90 minutes per week. As deputy prime minister said Beata Szydlo, this program would be spread over two or three years. Forum of Trade Unions and the Association of Polish Teachers rejected the government proposal. The remaining consistent with the postulated earlier 30-percent wage increase for teachers this year.

They suggested, however, its implementation in three consecutive dates. Presented by a calendar of payments included realized in January of this year, an increase of 5 percent. remuneration and previously announced by the government on September 1 wage increase of 9.6 percent.
