After every Local Authority elections, the ETB boards are replenished with 21 members appointed.

- Business, industry and employers;

- Learners;

- Management of or Leadership in recognised schools.

In July 2019, pursuant to Section 30(11)(a) of the Education and Training Boards Act 2013, I specified a number of bodies as having the right to nominate persons for appointment to Education and Training Boards. A list of these bodies is in the following link for the Deputy's information.

Details of the five persons and their nominating bodies elected to the boards under section 30(11) of the Education and Training Board Act 2013 are in the following link.

The five persons have not yet been elected to the Board of Limerick and Clare ETB but my Department has been informed this will take place on the 3rd October 2019 and a vacancy exists on the Board of Laos and Offaly ETB which will be filled on the 9th October 2019. My officals can provide the Deputy with that additional information once it becomes available.
