Droichead is an integrated professional induction framework for newly qualified teachers. It includes school-based and additional professional learning activities to address the needs of teachers as they begin their careers. From September 2018, all newly qualified teachers who are teaching in a school with 400 or more pupils or are employed in Special Educational Needs posts, e.g., resource teacher, can only complete their induction through the Droichead model.  Currently the only exception to this is where a NQT has a contract of less than 200 hours in a post-primary school.  Further information is available at http://www.teachingcouncil.ie/en/FAQs/Droichead-2017/
