Secondment Scheme for Teachers employed in recognised primary and post primary schools to External Organisations


Secondment provides an arrangement for an external organisation to meet a specialised human resource requirement through the temporary assignment of a teacher where that need cannot be effectively met through the normal appointment process. The Secondment Scheme is designed to facilitate the temporary assignment of a teacher to a position in a host organisation, where the work to be carried out by the seconded teacher is of clear benefit to the education system and/or is in the public interest.  Secondment must be based on agreement between the teacher, the employee and the host organisation. Secondment arrangements are subject to Department/ETB approval.
