A Qualification Allowance in respect of a Pass Primary Degree is paid to 7,199 Primary Teachers.

Qualification allowances were abolished for teachers appointed after the 1 February 2012. The full details are outlined in Circular 8/2013 which can be accessed on my Department website. Due to other priority commitments at present it is not possible to obtain data in relation to the number of teachers not being paid a qualification allowance.
