The CPSMA has revised the wording of the Standard Application Form for Teaching Posts. The new form reflects the revised Teaching Council Registration Categories and also includes Droichead as a route if induction. NQTs should use this revised form in all future applications requiring the Standard Application Form. Selection boards will accept the older version for jobs already advertised and have been advised that applicants may have made annotations to the form to reflect they inducted via Droichead. The revised forms are available now on www.educationposts.ie or via this link
The aim of the research will be to provide an insight into the profile of the schools engaging in Droichead and the PST members. To examine the elements of the NIPT training and support which has an impact on the teachers practice and best supports their role, to investigate the benefits and challenges encountered in their role as PST members and to highlight to what extent engaging in the Droichead process is changing the school culture.
