Deepening teacher supply crisis requires immediate and integrated response from Department

04 December 2019
The Department of Education and Skills has published a document entitled Developing a Teacher Demand and Supply Model for Ireland 2020 – 2036 This document represents an initial set of projections but it is acknowledged by the Department as not purporting to take account of preferred policy directions towards the improvement of the public education system. At the national consultative forum on teacher supply on 28th November, TUI representatives pointed out clearly that the document is essentially blind to the current deepening crisis in teacher supply at second level.
