Voluntary Redeployment 2019

Friday 15 February 2019

The pilot voluntary redeployment scheme will operate in counties Galway, Roscommon, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford for redeployments from September 2019.  

The scheme allows permanent/CID teachers who are employed in schools in counties Galway, Roscommon, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford to express an interest in being redeployed to another post primary school anywhere in the country.  

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.

Interested teachers should complete Form Pilot VOL RD1 19-20 and have it certified by school management.

Completed forms should be returned to Post Primary Allocations Section, Department of Education and Skills, Athlone, Co. Westmeath, N37 X659 by 8 March 2019.
