Teaching Council of Ireland
Under the Teaching Council Acts 2001-2015 the Teaching Council is the body with statutory authority and responsibility for the regulation of the teaching profession in Ireland including the registration of teachers in the State.
The Teaching Council registers teachers in line with the requirements set out in the Teaching Council Act 2001-2015 and the Teaching Council (Registration) Regulations 2016 to 2021.
In 2020, the Teaching Council amended its Registration Regulations for a limited timeframe due to the Covid 19 pandemic, to facilitate the registration of teachers who qualified overseas and enable them to complete their post-qualification induction in Ireland.
The Teaching Council (Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 were signed in to law on May 30th, providing for the Council to extend the 2020 emergency measures related to the registration of teachers in order to manage the ongoing impact of the pandemic, to October 2021.
