Northern Ireland Substitute Teacher Register

Welcome to the Northern Ireland Substitute Teacher Register (NISTR) information web site.  NISTR is an on-line web based facility which provides a real-time booking system and a regional centralised database for all substitute teachers in Northern Ireland.

If you are already a school or a substitute teacher registered on the system, you can use the Login button above to connect to the NISTR web application.  If you are a substitute teacher and you wish to register on the system then complete the stages on our New Substitute Teacher Registration page.  If you are a school and wish to register a new user please contact NISTR administration.

We are always aiming to improve our system and welcome feedback from users.
