Allocation of Teachers to Schools

From: Department of Education and Skills

Description

Teacher allocations are approved annually in accordance with established rules based on recognised pupil enrolment.

The Department of Education and Skills allocates staffing resources to primary, secondary, community and comprehensive schools and ETB schools (through Education and Training Boards – ETBs). This includes:

  • allocation of mainstream primary classroom teaching resources to schools
  • allocation of teaching resources to second level schools and ETBs
  • redeployment of teachers in accordance with the relevant redeployment schemes

The staffing arrangements include a mechanism for schools to submit an appea, under certain criteria, to an independent appeals board.
