Procedures for the Approval of Teachers

After interview, the Chairperson of the Board of Management must seek the approval of the Patron for the appointment of all teachers, permanent and fixed-term, before a post can be offered to a teacher (page 46, Constitution of Boards and Rules of Procedure, DES, 2011)

To obtain the required approval, the Chairperson can submit details of the appointment by fax to 01 8368393 if there is pressure of time, or by post to the Education Secretariat. It cannot be done by email as a signature is necessary.
