Vacant Teaching Posts To Remain Vacant

The Department of Education and Skills (DES)  has just issued Circular 67/2010 outlining procedures for filling teaching vacancies that arise during the remainder of the 2010/11 school year. The procedures at primary level mean that any permanent teaching vacancies, with the exception of school principal and deputy principal posts, that arise between 1st December 2010 and the end of the school year may be filled only on a temporary basis.

This means that where the appointment process has not been completed by Wednesday next, 1st December, a permanent post will not be sanctioned by the DES.

The Circular is framed in the context of the announcement on Wednesday regarding a reduction in teacher numbers for the next school year and the consequential impact this will have on teacher redeployment panels. The CEC is holding a special meeting next Saturday to consider all the issues arising from the National Recovery Plan announced by the Government on Wednesday last.
