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.
