Complaints about registered teachers
One of the functions of the Teaching Council is to investigate complaints and, where necessary, hold inquiries about registered teachers.
The Minister for Education and Skills formally commenced Part 5 of the Teaching Council Acts, 2001–2015 on 25 July 2016 which allows the Council to receive complaints about registered teachers and to conduct investigations and hold inquiries, where deemed appropriate.
Any person including members of the public, employers and other teachers may make a complaint about a registered teacher. In addition, the Teaching Council can itself make a complaint about a registered teacher.
