Supplementary panel now operating in some areas

The Irish National Teachers’ Organisation wishes to advise our members that the Department of Education has issued the latest panel update.

The supplementary panel is now in operation in the following dioceses/areas:

 ETB  An Foras Pátrúnachta  Educate Together Church of Ireland
 Armagh  Clonfert  Cork  Ferns
 Kilmore  Limerick  Ossory  Ross
 Tuam  Waterford & Lismore  Dublin


Any remaining permanent posts may be filled from the supplementary panel and all fixed-term vacancies can be advertised in these areas only. As soon as the main panel is clear in other dioceses/areas, the supplementary panel will issue immediately. Schools are reminded that fixed-term vacancies are not filled from the supplementary panel.

The department has also published a Supplementary Panel FAQ.

Teachers on the panel should ensure that they complete a Supplementary Panel Update Form (PUF) and return it to the Primary Allocations Section of the department when they have secured a permanent or fixed-term post or if they wish to remove their name from the panel.

The INTO has created a short informational animation about the supplementary panel below. This video explains the appointment process and accepting a job offer from the supplementary panel.

I have applied to the panel – what happens next?

Members with further questions about the Supplementary Panel should  watch the webinar above. Following the webinar, if you have further questions, COEL team members on the Queryline will be happy to advise and assist you. Email or phone 01 8047700.
