Review and Accreditation 2021 - 2023

In preparation for the next cycle of the review and accreditation process, the Council reviewed its policy on standards for programmes of ITE which was informed by an extensive consultation process with all key stakeholders and commissioned research on school placement.

On 11 November 2020, the Teaching Council launched the revised standards for programmes of Initial Teacher Education (ITE) in Céim: Standards for Initial Teacher Education and the revised Teaching Council Curricular Subject Registration Requirements (Post-primary). 

All new primary and post-primary programmes submitted to the Council for accreditation must now be in alignment with Céim. Existing programmes of ITE shall be realigned in accordance with Céim for commencement in September 2022 for first year student teachers.
