Changes to the career break scheme for registered teachers employed in recognised primary and post-primary schools

Notice November 2019

In response to issues raised in relation to teacher supply, certain restrictions imposed in the Career Break Scheme are suspended for the remainder of the 2019/20 school year.  This suspension will apply to the 2019/20 school year only. A teacher who is on a career break may now be employed in a substitute capacity only, without the restrictions imposed in the Career Break Scheme as contained in Chapter 7 (Paragraph 8.1) of Circular 54/2019.  See Information Note TTC 001/2019 .
