Appointments to posts of responsibility are made in accordance with Chapter 3 of Circular 44/2019.
A school’s allocation of posts of responsibility is based on the total number of teaching posts allocated to the school in the previous school year.
All full-time teaching and SET base posts in the school count towards this allocation (with the exception of Principal Release Cluster base posts).
Personal basis post holders, teachers who have held their post of responsibility following redeployment, or an historical amalgamation (more than 5 years ago) can block new appointments to posts of responsibility. These teachers are expected to undertake post of responsibility duties in their school.
