Job Information

We receive many emails and messages via social media enquiring about jobs. Much as we would like to provide some kind of jobs forum, it is simply impossible for us to do so. Here is what we can do.

If you are a school, and would like to advertise a job, send us an email to atsirlanda[AT]gmail[DOT]com, and we will circulate it to our members.

If you are looking for a teacher to give private classes, post a message with your requirements on our Facebook page. That way, teachers who see it can get in touch with you directly.

If you are looking for a job, we cannot, unfortunately, circulate your messages. However, as Ireland does not have a centralised system of applying for work in schools, here are some websites which may be of help to you.

Las Ventas, Madrid
Las Ventas, Madrid

1. Document from the Teaching Council with Post-Primary Curricular Subject Criteria and a list of recognised degree/teacher education programmes in Ireland. 

2. Page with links to Excel documents which contain information on schools (both primary and post-primary) including addresses and names of principals. The latest information can be found by choosing the 2012/13 links.

3. New and existing information about the requirements for becoming a teacher of post-primary subjects in this country.

4. Information about applying to become a registered teacher for teachers from Ireland and from outside Ireland.

5. Universities where you can do a teacher training course:

Dublin City University

Hibernia College

National University of Ireland – there is a centralised application system for UCC, UCD, UCG and NUIM.

Trinity College Dublin is a mailing list for education jobs. As always, we do not endorse this or any of the websites mentioned on this site, but simply hope that these links will help you with your search for a job.

We look forward to meeting you online or in person and we hope to connect with you at events that the ATS organizes such as the AGM, at a debate where you could participate as a judge, at the workshop in May, and of course also connect with us online on Twitter and Facebook.
