In recent weeks the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation has advised and assisted members in relation to claiming a Contract of Indefinite Duration (CID) under the provisions contained in the Department of Education Circular 0023/2015. This year’s application form is Appendix H of DE Circular 25/2022. Notification of decisions in respect of these applications is currently underway.
At the time of writing. over 750 CIDs have been granted which confirms permanent status for these teachers. Applications continue to be processed by the DE and are awaiting a decision.
As previously notified, supply panel positions and Principal release day clusters are viable posts for eligibility for the award of a CID.
Members should note that any appeal of either a refusal to grant a CID or the terms of the CID contract (if awarded) must be made within four working weeks of the date of notification. The adjudication process is outlined in DE Circular 0030/2018.
Members should continue to email any queries regarding CIDs including the adjudication process to firstname.lastname@example.org.
