Specific arrangements were implemented with regard to the payment of substitute teachers at the commencement of the lockdown period for primary and second level schools.

These arrangements provided that substitute teachers who were contracted by the managerial authorities of the schools in which they were employed were paid for the duration of the contracts.

Qualified substitute teachers paid on payrolls operated by my Department in accordance with these arrangements are awarded incremental credit for the periods of the service.
