The latest jobs in education are opening up for the first time in almost a decade.
The government’s recruitment strategy for 2018 has also been reworked to better align the roles of teachers and other staff with the workforce.
The Department of Education said it had identified 15 positions in education in the second quarter of 2018, with another 14 positions to be opened in the third quarter.
The Government has announced more than £600 million worth of new funding for teachers, including more than $1 billion for teacher training, more than a quarter of which will be provided by the National Teacher Training and Assessment Scheme.
The programme has seen an average of more than 500,000 young people enter the workforce since 2010.
The latest announcement also said more than 40,000 people have received an apprenticeship through the scheme, and that more than 20,000 additional people have applied for a teacher position.
Education Minister Aileen Campbell said she had a “good” start to the new year, saying the Government was putting “more emphasis on the development of young people”.
“We are building on the momentum that we have seen this year,” she said.
“We have more young people, we have more opportunity to meet and learn from them.”
And I think the Government is making a lot of good progress.
“Teacher job opportunities have expanded for the past four years, with the latest figures showing there were more than 6,000 more opportunities available in the first quarter of 2019 than in the same period last year.”
Ms Campbell said the Government would be introducing more measures to increase the number of opportunities available for teachers.””
It’s a priority that we want to keep in place.”
Ms Campbell said the Government would be introducing more measures to increase the number of opportunities available for teachers.
“I want to see that the number that we provide for teachers and support staff, the number we provide to schools to help support young people with skills and qualifications, we are working to support those schools to continue to grow,” she told RTE.
“That’s a real focus and that’s what we’re focused on.”
For me, it’s not just getting more opportunities for teachers to fill those positions.
It’s getting more of our people who are currently working to continue their careers.
“Education Minister Michelle O’Neill said the government would continue to make the most of teachers, saying they were “one of the pillars” of education in Ireland.”
They have the ability to make a real difference to people’s lives, to the lives of their families, to their communities,” she added.”
It is the best teacher that you could ever ask for, because you don’t need to get a degree to teach.
“You get to have the right attitude to your craft, and it’s an extremely rewarding experience.”
