Substitute Teaching Position Service (STP) – For Candidates

This is an advertisement service that has put in place for candidates and schools to help with shortage of teachers for short term positions (substitute teaching positions). These types of vacancies are less than 24 calendar week-longer.

If you are a fully qualified teacher interested in short term vacancies and would like to be alerted when substitute teaching positions are available, please register on our system or, if you have already registered with us, simply update alerts on your account. All our services are free of charge for job seekers.

When you set up an alert for substitute teaching positions on your profile, an alert will be sent to you when a school has a vacancy of this type in the counties you are willing to work.

The Department of Education and Skills of Ireland has issued the Circular 0031/2011 in which states Teacher recruitment, registration and qualifications. More information here.

If you are appointed to a Substitute Teaching Position, remember to bring with you the required documentation on your first day as a Substitute Teacher to present to the Principal.
