AHECs Lunch n Learn – The Teaching Council
The Teaching Council is the professional standards body for the teaching profession, which promotes and regulates professional standards in teaching. In Ireland, teachers must be registered with the Teaching Council in order for their salary to be paid from state funds.
This session will outline the most common pathways to becoming a primary or post-primary teacher in Ireland. Important documents and useful websites will be signposted including the Irish language requirements for primary teaching and the curricular subject requirements for post-primary teaching.
For those wishing to qualify outside of Ireland, key information will be highlighted to ensure registration can be processed in line with the relevant EU Directive (2005/36/EC).
The Teaching Council’s new online registration process will also be introduced.
