Written answers (Question to Education)

The ETB is a statutory body with its own corporate status established under the Education and Training Boards Act 2013. Each Educational Training Board (ETB) receives a teaching staffing allocation from my Department and it is the responsibility of each ETB to recruit and manage staffing levels within this allocation.

Terms and conditions of employment for staff employed by ETBs are matters for the ETB concerned. While the recruitment and appointment of teachers to fill teaching posts is a matter for the individual school authority, in this case the ETB, it is subject to procedures agreed under Section 24(3) of the Education Act 1998 (as amended by the Education (Amendment) Act 2012).
