How do I register as a substitute teacher?

A new register of substitute teachers has been developed and has been supported by the Department of Education and the five education and library boards, CCMS, NICIE, voluntary grammar schools, Irish Medium schools and trade union representatives from the Northern Ireland Teachers' Council.

Please note that the Department of Education Circular 2006/2007 advises that from 1st September 2006 only substitute teachers who are on the Northern Ireland Substitute Teacher Register should be employed in schools.

If you are already working in Northern Ireland as a substitute teacher, click here to join the Substitute Teacher Register.

The Register will ask you to enter details relating to your qualifications, teacher training and experience so it would be useful to have relevant documents to hand.

If you would like to find out more about registering, phone (028) 9056 4000 ext. 4427 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
