Contracts of Employment
A Board of Management, as the employer, must provide all employees with a written statement of the terms of their employment. Staff engaged for their first permanent or fixed term contract should receive these terms within two months of their appointment. Any subsequent contracts must be provided prior to the date of renewal/commencement of that contract.
The employment contract to be used for Special Needs Assistants was published as Circular 15/05 available on the Department of Education and Skills website.
Educate Together is currently creating a series of sample employment contracts for school staff (other than Special Needs Assistants). Once these are ready they will be made available on our online training site. If you haven’t already done so you will need to register on the site and then enrol on the Appointment Procedures course where you will be asked to enter an enrolment key. This key was emailed to all board members via the BOM newsletter in April 2012. A letter was also sent to each Educate Together school Board of Management and patron body. If you have lost this please contact the national office and we will be happy to tell you what it is.
