If you cannot find an answer to your query about section 30 below, please email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org
Section 30 is a requirement within the Teaching Council Act, 2001, that a teacher has to be registered in order to be paid salary from State funds. The Minister has announced his intention to commence this section of the Act on 1 November 2013.
The Minister for Education and Skills will commence Section 30 on 1 November 2013.
In order to ensure that you are registered prior to the commencement of Section 30 on 1 November 2013, you should apply for registration without delay.
The Education (Amendment) Act, 2012 will require the Teaching Council to share information it holds on registered teachers with the Department of Education and Skills or VEC on a regular basis. This data will be used to determine if a teacher is registered.
The Council typically receives about 4,000 registration applications between June and August every year. It is the busiest time of the year for both the Council and the Garda Central Vetting Unit. Although the vast majority of teachers are registered within two weeks of the Garda Vetting process being completed, delays could be incurred during the Garda Vetting Process or where required documentation not initially submitted is requested by the Council in order to complete the registration process.
The three month timeframe allows the Council to liaise/correspond with an applicant about his/her application.
For teachers transferred onto the Register in 2006, the Council did not have the remit to request or assess qualifications documentation. Such teachers were registered by virtue of their employment as a teacher and were not required to provide qualifications transcripts to the Teaching Council.
If you were one of those teachers that allowed your registration to lapse, you must apply to the Council for registration via the standard application process. This requires you to submit qualifications transcripts (unless you have previously submitted your qualification transcripts to the Council) and other supporting documentation. The Council’s standard registration process must remain robust and consistent regardless of whether a teacher is newly qualified or otherwise.
Under Department of Education and Skills Circular 0063/2010, school authorities are required to obtain the original version of the Teaching Council Garda Vetting letter from all prospective employees and retain a copy for their records.
