Secondment provides an arrangement for an external organisation to meet a specialised human resource requirement through the temporary assignment of a teacher where that need cannot be effectively met through the normal appointment process.
The secondment scheme is designed to facilitate the temporary assignment of a teacher to a position in a host organisation, where the work to be carried out by the seconded teacher is of clear benefit to the education system or is in the public interest.
Secondment must be based on agreement between the teacher, the employee and the host organisation.
Secondment arrangements are subject to approval by the Department of Education/Education and Training Board (ETB).
