Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

The redeployment panels that have been published consist solely of surplus permanent-CID teachers who are fully registered with the Teaching Council. The next stage of the redeployment panels will consist of fixed-term primary teachers who are fully registered with the Teaching Council and who have a minimum of five years service.

The supplementary panels consist of fixed-term teachers who are fully registered with the Teaching Council and who have between three and five years service. The supplementary panels will recognize as appropriate, substitute service. The supplementary panel becomes operational when the main panel is cleared. It is the intention of the Department to restore recruitment from fixed-term teachers on the main panels, supplementary panels or public advertisement at the earliest possible opportunity, after all the surplus permanent teachers have been redeployed.
