The Teaching Council

Registration

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 on how to register.

Code of Professional Conduct

The Teaching Council has published a Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers, which sets out the standards of professional knowledge, skill, competence and conduct expected of registered teachers. These are underpinned by four core values – respect, care, integrity and trust.
