Appropriate use of NISTR

TNC circular document to clearly set out for school principals, senior leaders, teachers and boards of governors the purposes for which NISTR should be used, paying particular attention to the circumstances when it is permissible to use NISTR to engage teachers.

The NISTR benefits both schools and teachers in dealing with the practical issues involved in arranging qualified teaching cover.  The “Register” is supported and endorsed by the Department of Education (DE), employing authorities, GTCNI and the Northern Ireland Teachers’ Council and Teaching Unions.  NISTR is the only mechanism for engaging substitute teachers in all schools.
