The pilot voluntary redeployment scheme established in 2013 is to continue in 2021. The scheme will operate in counties Galway, Roscommon and Wicklow for redeployments from September 2021. The scheme will also include eligible teachers from any part of the country outside Dublin who wish to be redeployed to Dublin.
The scheme allows:
- permanent/CID teachers who are employed in schools in counties Galway, Roscommon and Wicklow to express an interest in being redeployed to another post primary school anywhere in the country.
- permanent/ CID teachers anywhere outside Dublin to express an interest in being redeployed to a post primary school in Dublin.
If you apply for voluntary redeployment and a suitable vacancy exists in a school in your preferred area, you may be offered a redeployment to that vacancy. However, you will only be redeployed if a suitable teacher can be redeployed to your school to replace you.
Your school must indicate its willingness to release you and to accept a replacement teacher on redeployment. Principals should declare on the form the preferred subject options that the school requires as a replacement for you, if you are redeployed. These subjects do not have to be your subjects; this gives the school an opportunity to address a curriculum mismatch within the school.
