Further Education

In accordance with Route Three of the Teaching Council [Registration] Regulations, 2016 and the Teaching Council [Registration] (Amendment) Regulations 2016, with effect from 25 July 2016, applicants for registration for the further education sector, must attain a Council approved further education teacher education qualification.

The Teaching Council has also published Further Education: General and Programme Requirements for the Accreditation of Teacher Education Qualifications. These are used by the Council when assessing and accrediting further education teacher education programmes being offered by HEIs. A pro forma is used by HEIs in submitting further education programmes for accreditation.

The first cycle of review and accreditation has now been completed for all programmes, and reports have been issued to the HEIs.

Where accreditation is granted, reports on the programme review will be published on this page.
