Droichead is the only route of induction for all Primary and Post Primary NQTs registered after 1 June 2020.
Important To Note:
Before you apply for Droichead you must confirm that your school is willing to facilitate you through the process by providing at least two Professional Support Team Members (PSTs), who will be working collaboratively to support and mentor you during the Droichead process. Commencement of your Droichead process can only occur when your Professional Support Team (PST), with a minimum of two trained members, have completed at least two days of PST training. Conclusion of your Droichead process can only occur once your PST has concluded all of their PST training (four days). A copy of the confirmation of approval to commence Droichead email will be required by the PST within your school to commence your Droichead process.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and on an exceptional basis, additional flexibility is being introduced to support the process for both the teachers and the schools/PST involved.(See Section 3 of Post-qualification Professional Practice Transitionary Arrangements 2020/2021)
