The History and Structure of the Irish Education System Aptitude Test is administered twice a year by the Teaching Council to facilitate persons registered under Regulation Four of the Teaching Council [Registration] Regulations, 2009 with the condition that they demonstrate an acceptable level of knowledge and understanding of this subject. This is a compulsory course on all Teaching Council accredited post-primary initial teacher education programmes in Ireland.
Applicants applying for registration under the terms of EU Directive 2005/36/EC must be afforded the choice of addressing this condition/shortfall by means of an Aptitude Test or Adaptation Period. This test fulfills the Aptitude Test requirement.
