TUI update on Leaving Certificate 2021

The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) notes the decision of the ASTI to rejoin the Leaving Certificate talks based on information and assurances that the TUI had already sought and secured.  At every point the TUI has insisted upon and received assurances that the Leaving Certificate written examinations would take place subject only to public health advice. It was on this basis that we entered the confidential talks process. One of our key priorities, to ensure that the other components of assessment would also take place, had been significantly advanced following detailed proposals by the TUI.  Our unbroken and constructive engagement in the process also greatly progressed approaches in relation to the problematic issue of class rank order information that formed part of last year’s assessment process.
