Written answers (Question to Education)

The criteria for the award of incremental credit to recognised primary and post-primary teachers, including for teaching service outside the EU,  is set out in Circulars 10/2001, 29/2007 and 29/2010. These circulars were agreed under the auspices of the Teachers Conciliation Council (TCC). The Council is comprised of representatives of teachers, school management, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, the Department of Education & Skills and is chaired by an official of the Workplace Relations Commission.
