The managerial authorities of schools are requested annually to inform the Payroll Division of my Department of all teacher appointments to their schools as early as possible during the summer to allow the teacher to be set up for payment through the Department’s payroll.

The teacher appointment form in this instance was signed in the school on 9 September 2019 and received in my Department on 24 September 2019.

The appointment form was reviewed by staff in my Department and returned to the person referred to on 3 October 2019 as a required declaration had not been completed.

The fully completed appointment form and declaration was subsequently received too late to be included in salary payments issued on 17 October.

I am glad to inform the Deputy that the teacher appointment has now been recorded in my Department’s payroll system and the person referred to will be paid on 31 October 2019.  The payment will include arrears of salary due to the person.
