Concluding the Process

“When an NQT is nearing the conclusion of the Droichead process, as per the indicative timeframe agreed at the start of the process, a professional conversation takes place between the NQT and the PST. This conversation will also involve the NQT identifying areas of further professional learning” (Teaching Council, 2017, p.6).  

Following the Droichead process, a declaration is made by the NQT that they are ready to move to the next phase on the continuum of teacher education. The teacher will be fully registered by the Council when all registration conditions (e.g., Irish Language Requirement, qualifications shortfall conditions) have been deemed by the Teaching Council to have been met (Teaching Council, 2017, p.3).
