In his Irish Times column last week, Brian Mooney raised some interesting questions in relation to teacher supply.

On behalf of the Teaching Council, the Director, Mr Tomás Ó Ruairc, has written a response to this which can be read below or on the Irish Times website. This sets out the work that has been undertaken by the Council to achieve a fully qualified teaching profession. It also outlines some of the steps that need to be taken to address the issues in relation to teacher supply.
