Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

The Department's consideration of the matter has been completed in recent days. I am pleased to say that teachers who successfully completed the special one-year course run by the National College of Art and Design for the academic years 2001-02 and 2002-03 and who were awarded the NUI Diploma in Art Teaching at honours level will now be entitled to the honours degree allowance. My Department is making arrangements to have the allowance paid to relevant teachers.
