The fifth webinar of the 2021 Learning for All series will take place on Thursday, 3 June at 3pm Irish Time. The webinar is entitled ‘Re-imagining on the cusp – what next for education post-Covid?’. We are delighted to welcome panellists from Ireland, Scotland, Canada and Australia to take part in the discussion.

This webinar will take a look at how education has evolved over the past year. The pandemic has forced us to rethink education and what is important for our students. Last March, schools around the world had to react over night to the first pandemic in a century. Since then, schools have worked hard with communities to respond to their needs, some old, some new. It is fair to say that the creativity and capacity of education systems to innovate has been put to the test. How have we fared? What did we learn and how has our vision for the future of education changed?

There is now a greater awareness of the importance of teaching as a social and relational process, while the need for quality learning environments for all students is better understood. How can we build on and scale the new ideas and practices which have emerged?

Summer Provision 2021
Over the past few months, the Teaching Council has been actively engaging with the Department of Education and the Irish Primary Principals' Network (IPPN) regarding the Summer Provision. The following Frequently Asked Questions have been designed to support the provision of accurate information and direction to registered teachers.

What is Summer Provision?

Summer Provision is a programme that offers tuition to students with a range of particular/additional needs during the summer months. It can be offered either in school or in the student’s home in line with specific criteria depending on the particular needs of the student(s). It is available to both primary and post-primary aged students. It was previously known as the July Provision Scheme.

Where do I find information about the Summer Provision?

All the relevant Summer Provision information including terms and conditions is available on the Department of Education’s website here. This year Summer Provision has been extended at both primary and post-primary level.

Who can work on Summer Provision?

All registered teachers are eligible to work on the Summer Provision. This includes teachers registered under Primary, Post-primary, Further Education and Route 4 Other. Please note that Graduate Teachers 2021 and PME student teachers registered under Further Education are eligible to provide Summer Provision 2021 once they meet the criteria set out in the Department’s overview documents.

I am a teacher, how do I find a job on Summer Provision?

To help teachers and SNAs identify summer provision vacancies in schools, the IPPN has created a Summer Provision Noticeboard for teachers and SNAs.

The noticeboards will help schools and parents find relevant staff in their local area and can be used across all settings; primary, special schools, post-primary and home provision.
