Department of Education and Skills
163. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if a person employed by a local secondary school whose contract is with the board of management of the school and who is nearly of pensionable age can continue to work until 70 years of age; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11144/20]
The Boards of Management of schools are responsible for the employment of ancillary staff. Funding to cater for these services is made available from my Department through the Ancillary Services and Capitation Grants.
It is a matter for the Board of Management of the school to determine whether the individual concerned may continue to work until 70 years of age having regard to the terms of their employment contract and any employment legislation that is in place.
