Department of Education and Skills
The teacher in question completed her Higher Diploma in Education in 2014 and became eligible to register as a qualified teacher. As her first appointment as a qualified teacher was after 2012 the pay scale that applies in this case is the 2012 pay scales. Any service the teacher had prior to completing the Higher Diploma in Education was unqualified and therefore not considered when assigning the person to the relevant pay scale.
