Teaching Council

Every teacher must pay the Teaching Council a fee every year. In return, teachers are allowed to teach. The Teaching Council is made up of a number of representatives from various bodies and have gained a lot of power in recent years. Unfortunately, this power has resulted in some questionable decisions. This page aims to keep an eye on what they are doing.


By far the most controversial plan that the Teaching Council tried to push through in teaching is Droichead. Over 90% of teachers voted against it twice, yet it still hangs over us. The INTO have backed it from the start in whatever guise it has appeared. What could have been a wonderful way of continuing the super work of mentoring, it currently sits as a lazy watered down shadow of itself that does no favours to the teaching profession. Here is one of our proposals for how Droichead could work.

The Teaching Council had failed to introduce Droichead effectively into primary schools. It currently sits in an uncertain position. The INTO CEC supports it vehemently but the teaching profession, at large, has no faith in it. Here are 10 suggestions for the Teaching Council.
