Postponement of PST Training

Given the current challenges facing schools in securing substitute cover, the Department of Education has advised that any CPD which attracts sub-cover should be postponed until after February mid-term. The DE has also indicated that the temporary suspension of CPD will not affect the completion of the Droichead process for NQTs. Therefore, a very limited offering of PST Training for exceptional cases is allowed to enable NQTs to complete their Droichead process within the duration of their contracts. The DE is allowing the in-school release time (for Strand A) to remain in place to support the Droichead process.
