The Substitute Teacher Database is a tool that lets employers connect with available substitute teachers quickly and easily. Jobseekers who are registered on EducationCareers.ie can chose to create a profile on the database. This profile contains the subjects they teach, their location and their availability along with contact details, qualifications and most importantly, registration with the Teaching Council. Employers looking to find a substitute teacher in their area can subscribe to the database and search the profiles by subject and location.
Jobseekers must re-activate their profile every 45 days to keep it listed on the database. While it is the responsibility of the jobseeker to provide full and accurate information, our staff carry out spot checks to ensure the system is up to date and accurate.
No. When you register as a jobseeker on the site your profile is NOT active by default. Your profile will only become active when you have entered your information into the database and chosen to activate your profile.
This is what an employer sees when they look at a jobseeker’s online profile on the Substitute Teacher Database. A jobseeker's profile lists the contact details (name, address, e-mail and telephone number) and your subjects, qualifications and previous experience (including referees and contact numbers of same). "Employers" include Irish primary and post-primary schools along with private sector employers (e.g. grind schools), recruitment agencies and some schools in the UK.
