Retrospective Vetting of Teachers Project

The Retrospective Vetting project of unvetted teachers on the Teaching Council register concluded earlier this week.

The Teaching Council has reported to the INTO that all registered teachers in current employment met the deadline of 30th April 2018 for submission of retrospective vetting applications to the National Vetting Bureau.

From January 2017 to the 30th April, 2018 over 28,000 teachers were vetted through the retrospective vetting process. A further 3,000 unvetted teachers on the register were vetted through the standard vetting process. These were teachers who were unvetted but changed school, role or employer during that period.
