All Educate Together schools are non fee paying national schools. Teaching staff in our schools work under the same terms and conditions as all teachers in the primary education sector. Teachers in Educate Together schools often get asked what it's like to work there. The question generally comes from other teachers, unfamiliar with the equality-based sector. In an effort to inform and reassure, we asked a bunch of Educate Together teachers why they liked working in Educate Together schools. Have a look at their answers:
As the Educate Together school network is steadily growing, both in new schools and school expansions, employment opportunities for mainstream, resource teachers and special needs assistants will become available. Details of these opportunities are available on www.educationposts.ie, and positions within the National Office or for leadership roles within our network are available on our Careers page. Educate Together also operates its own panel for teacher recruitment.
Teachers in Educate Together schools teach the national curriculum using active learning techniques. The Learn Together moral and ethical curriculum is taught for 2.5 hours a week during school hours in place of religious instruction.
