The Teaching Council
It a requirement for teachers to register with the Teaching Council in order to be paid salary by the State.
If a teacher does not renew registration on time then salary will be stopped. Teachers are responsible for ensuring that their contact details are up to date – home address, email and phone numbers may be updated through the My Registration facility. This enables the Council to notify teachers prior to registration being due for renewal.
How do I Register?
The process depends on whether an applicant qualified in Ireland or outside Ireland. Full details can be found here.
