Change to career break scheme

By TUI Tuesday, 30th January 2018 | 0 comments
Schools may now employ teachers who are on a Career Break to cover in a substitute capacity without the restrictions imposed in Paragraph 5.1, Chapter 8 (Career Break Scheme) of the Terms and Conditions of Employment for Registered Teachers in Recognised Primary and Post Primary Schools.
Far from remedying the problem, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) believes that restricting career breaks will make the retention of teachers at second level even more difficult.
TUI is organising a lunchtime protest on Thursday, 1st February, 2018, outside schools, FET centres and Institutes of Technology to highlight the damage that pay inequality is inflicting on our schools/colleges and centres.
