Written answers (Question to Education)

Under the Teaching Council Acts 2001-2015 the Teaching Council is the body with statutory authority and responsibility for the regulation of the teaching profession in Ireland including the registration of teachers in the State. 

The Teaching Council have currently registered over 3,000 Newly Qualified Teachers this year, it has also registered over 940 teachers across all 4 registration routes since May.

The Teaching Council inform me that the person referred to by the Deputy is registered with effect from 7 of September 2020. Should the individual have any queries regarding their registration I would advise they liaise directly with the Teaching Council.
