Under the Teaching Council Acts 2001-2015 the Teaching Council is the statutory body with responsibility for the registration of teachers.  

The person, to whom the Deputy refers, is advised to contact the Teaching Council to progress their application. The Teaching Council, as the statutory  body responsible for registration of teachers, can assist the individual in relation to the registration process, the steps involved including details of the information required to complete the registration and will also be in a position to advise as to the estimated timeline to conclusion of the process.
