The HEA welcomes the announcement of the Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh, TD, of a call for proposals for flexible programmes to upskill registered teachers to teach the targeted subject areas of mathematics, physics, and Spanish.

 

Arising from the Teacher Supply Action Plan, the call for proposals is being managed by the HEA on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.

 

The upskilling programmes proposed should enable a teacher to meet the Curricular Subject Requirements of the Teaching Council in mathematics, physics, and Spanish, as relevant.

 

To specifically address teacher supply challenges experienced in Irish medium schools, proposals for programmes to upskill teachers to teach the targeted subject in an Irish medium setting are encouraged.

 

Proposals in line with the criteria outlined in the call document should be submitted to the HEA in electronic format before 5pm on 2 March 2020 to teachereducation@hea.ie.
