For those teachers whose renewal of registration with the Teaching Council is due in January 2013, the good news is that the registration fee has been reduced from €90 to €65, a reduction of €25 or 28%. This fee reduction only applies to those registrations which fall due after January 1st 2013.

The Teaching Council website is also reporting that there has been a change in the registration renewal process with which teachers should become familiar:

“From now on a single Registration Renewal notice will be posted to teachers approximately four weeks in advance of their renewal date. If registration is not renewed by the expiry date, a Final Notice will be issued by registered post. If registration is not renewed within thirty days of the date on the Final Notice, the teacher’s name will be automatically removed from the register.”
