Bulletin 5: Investing in the Teaching Workforce

The Minister announced ‘500 new jobs for recently qualified teachers’ on Friday 18 December 2015.

The scheme, Investing in the Teaching Workforce, will enable schools to reduce their cost base, through a reduction in their teaching costs with recently qualified teachers filling the place of teachers eligible for premature retirement, those 55+. 

In turn, the scheme will allow those teachers over the age of 55 to retire with recognition of their contribution to education.  The full details of the scheme have not yet been finalised.

For further information please download INTO BULLETIN 2015 No. 5


For the latest developments on the Scheme an Investing in the Teaching Workforce section has been created on the DE website and all communications, relevant information and guidance will be placed on this section as the Scheme progresses.
