Induction relating to Irish qualified teachers

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Logged-in users can download below guidelines for induction in the UK relating to Irish qualified teachers, which include:

  • Induction Programme in UK for Irish qualified teachers
  • Form B - Certification of Post-Qualification Teaching Employment (PQE) in Non-Pilot Schools (POST-PRIMARY TEACHERS ONLY)
  • Form C - Notification of the Completion of the Probationary Condition (PRIMARY TEACHERS ONLY)

The Form B will need to be filled in by a Secondary trainee teacher detailing that they have completed 300 hours of post-qualification employment (PQE) in the school. This will fulfil the requirements for the PQE condition. The induction guidelines are the same for post-primary teachers as they are for primary teachers. The trainee teacher will need to provide both a letter from their school detailing that they have completed an induction period and a letter from the appropriate body confirming the same. This will fulfil the requirements for the Induction condition.

The Form C will need to be completed by a Primary trainee teacher and submitted with a satisfactory statement of completion to the Teaching Council in Ireland.

Please note: There is a time period (expiry date) for respective registration conditions. NQTs from Ireland are normally required to fulfil their registration conditions within three years of initial registration. Failures to satisfactorily fulfil conditions within the defined period of time may result in a teacher's registration lapsing.
