Where an applicant for registration as a Post-Primary teacher has completed a programme of teacher education outside of the Republic of Ireland, they are required to gain a knowledge and understanding of the history and structure of the Irish education system. They can do this by successfully completing an Aptitude Test (facilitated by the Teaching Council) or an Adaptation Period in the History and Structure of the Irish Education System. Further information is available here.
