Career break amendment

Tuesday 20 November 2018

The Department of Education and Skills has issued an information note confirming the continuation of an amendment to arrangements under the Career Break Scheme for the 2018/19 school year. The amendment means that there is no cap on the amount of substitution hours for teachers on career break who are undertaking substitution work during the 2018/19 school year.

The amendment was first implemented in January 2018 in response to teacher supply issues.
