 54.  Deputy Brian Stanley Information on Brian Stanley Zoom on Brian Stanley  asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  the number of unregistered teachers currently employed at primary and post primary school level. [19498/12]

[160]Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn The information as requested by the Deputy for teachers in primary, secondary and community/comprehensive schools is not available.

As the Deputy will be aware, it is my intention to commence Section 30 of the Teaching Council Act following the enactment of the Education (Amendment) Bill 2012. This will prohibit the employment of unregistered teachers except in very limited circumstances. The numbers of unregistered persons who have acquired employment rights in schools will be determined following the completion of the transfer of data from the Teaching Council. This can only happen following enactment of the Bill.
