Teachers Taking Up Their First Appointment
Teachers taking up appointment in a temporary or permanent capacity will be required to fill out a Teacher Appointment Form in conjunction with their Principal. The DES issue a new Teacher Appointment Form every academic year.
Teachers taking up appointment as substitutes will be required to supply payment details to their school so that they can be paid through the OLCS.
Once the DES is notified arrangements will be made to place teachers on the appropriate point of the incremental scale. Details of current salary scales and allowances are available here.
Teachers taking up their first post as either a substitute, temporary or permanent teacher you should complete and return income tax Form 12A to their local tax office. This will allow a Tax Credit Certificate to be issued and thereby minimise the time spent on 'emergency tax'. Details of local tax office can be found on www.revenue.ie.
Teachers serving as substitutes are eligible for full INTO membership at a reduced rate for the school year. Click here for details of INTO membership.
All substitute, temporary and permanent teachers can join online.
Each school has an elected Staff Representative who will be happy to answer any queries you have regarding INTO membership.
