The core function of the redeployment arrangements is to facilitate the redeployment of surplus permanent and CID teachers to other schools where vacancies exist. The redeployment of all surplus permanent teachers to vacant teaching positions is key to the Department's ability to manage within its payroll budget.
Under these redeployment arrangements, teachers that are redeployed retain their employment rights as per the relevant agreed redeployment schemes.
There are currently no plans to introduce a separate redeployment scheme as per the Deputy's question.
Information about the redeployment schemes, including Frequently Asked Questions documents, is available on the Department’s website at https://www.education.ie/en/Schools-Colleges/Services/Teacher-Allocations/Teacher-Allocations-Post-Primary.html
