New Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) President Gerry Quinn today stated that Minister Jan O’ Sullivan must be ready to negotiate meaningfully with teachers on the issue of Junior Cycle change. Teachers insist that any new programme must be externally assessed and nationally certified.
The Department of Education and Skills have published Circular Letter 59/2014, which contains important information on changes to the Sick Leave Scheme for registered teachers.
The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) has congratulated Jan O’ Sullivan on her appointment to the position of Minister for Education and Skills. The union represents teachers and lecturers in second level schools, colleges of further education and Institutes of Technology.
The Department of Education and Skills has published Circular Letter 53/2014 which implements an improved salary scale and part time rate for those who entered teaching between 1 January 2011 and 31 January 2012 (2011 Entrants). This is a very significant salary gain for this group of teachers and was secured by the teacher unions under the Haddington Road Agreement.
