The traditional processes of Probation, Post-qualification Employment (PQE) and the Induction Workshop Programme have either concluded or are being phased out.
It is important to note that Droichead is the only route of induction for all primary and post-primary teachers registered from 1 June 2020.

Important Information for NQTs regarding their registration requirements for the Teaching Council:
● Schools outside of the above categories are also offering Droichead. NQTs are asked to check with their schools as only one process can be offered at school level (i.e. Droichead or PQE [PP] / Probation [P].
● Engagement in the NIPT Induction Workshop Programme is a requirement for NQTs who are completing Probation (Primary) or PQE (Post-Primary).
● Attendance at workshops is not a requirement for NQTs engaging in the Droichead process.
● NQTs participating in Droichead may count a workshop as an Additional Professional Learning Activity, to address a professional learning need identified by them, in consultation with their PST.
