Release Time

“The current induction release time model in schools allows schools flexibility and autonomy to prepare for Droichead induction activities as appropriate…. Commendable practice was seen in schools where release time was planned, structured, and organised” (Teaching Council, 2022, p.29).

Release time, with substitute cover, is automatically provided for school-based induction in schools providing the Droichead process. Schools are not required to apply for this release time.
