Primary Teaching

The Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton T.D. has announced new minimum entry requirements for primary teacher training programmes for the 2018/2019 academic year.

In addition to the points required for entry to programmes of primary initial teacher education (ITE), the Department of Education and Skills specifies minimum entry requirements in the core subjects: Maths, English and Irish. This is to ensure that primary teachers have the capacity to lead learning in these vital areas.

Changes announced have set higher minimum entry standards to programmes of primary initial teacher education for Leaving Certificate Maths and English at Ordinary Level and Irish at Higher Level.
