induction in northern ireland

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by codyboy, Jan 5, 2011.

  1. hi there, i was just wondering if there is a time limit to how long you can supply teach in NORTHERN IRELAND without having your induction completed. i am out of unversity for 5 years, im in my 6th now but i have only had one long term sub (6 months) which i was told iniatially would be a week, than another week than another and that is how it played out until the teacher did come back. apart from that iv only had days or maybe 2 weeks at a time so i never got induction completed. i was told after 5 years you cant sub anymore - i have never formally been told this. can anyone help please

  3. Hi
    I don't specialise in NI induction, and I am unaware of a limit. I doi know that you havwe to be on the apporoved register (NISTR) in order to work in state schools in NI.

    I suggest that the three plkaces to check on this are:
    1. The Northern Ireland Substitute Teacher Register (NISTR)
    http://www.nistr.org.uk/page.asp
    2. The General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland (GTCNI)
    http://www.gtcni.org.uk/
    3. The Depertment for Education (Northern Ireland)
    http://www.deni.gov.uk/
    All three have helplines that ypu can call to clarify the situation there.
