The criteria for the award of incremental credit to recognised teachers is outlined in my Department’s Circulars 10/2001, Primary, 29/2007 and 29/2010 Post-Primary. The criteria were agreed under the auspices of the Teachers Conciliation Council (TCC) which is comprised of representatives of teachers, school management, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, the Department of Education & Skills and chaired by an official of the Workplace Relations Commission.
Applications for incremental credit were received from the person to whom the Deputy refers. Following a review of the applications the applicant was advised that they were incomplete. We await receipt of fully completed application forms.
