As a follow-up to the publication of Circular 0061/2019 by the Department of Education and Skills, we are seeking expressions of interest from potential teachers of new Leaving Certificate curricular language subjects, Polish, Portuguese, Lithuanian and Mandarin Chinese. This is in order to establish where there is availability of potential teachers and to provide these teachers with the opportunity to express an interest in teaching at this initial stage. If you are interested click here.
The rollout of these foreign languages will be informed by responses to both this expression of interest form by potential teachers, and by responses to the expression of interest form for schools provided in Circular 0061/2019.
If you are interested in teaching any of these languages for Leaving Certificate from September 2020, please complete this form by Friday, 29 November.
For further information on the introduction of these new foreign languages, see Department of Education and Skills Circular 0061/2019 linked to here and Languages Connect – Ireland’s Strategy for Foreign Languages in Education here
