INTO SubSearch is designed to help teachers find substitute work - whether just out of college or seeking part-time employment. Here's how it works: Subs register their profiles and availability on the site - while Principals can search for registered subs in their area. SubSearch mobile is now also available for your smartphone! It works on Android phones and tablets, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone 7 and modern versions of blackberry.
Substitute teachers are reminded that since the commencement of the National Vetting Bureau Act on 29 April 2016, they may not commence employment in a school without providing a vetting disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau (NVB). Vetting received from the Garda Central Vetting Unit/ a Teaching Council vetting letter will not be sufficient. Schools are no longer permitted to appoint teachers pending vetting.
Where a school has, prior to 29 April, received a copy of the Teaching Council vetting letter in respect of a teacher it is not necessary to obtain a vetting disclosure from the NVB prior to employing that teacher as a substitute.
To enable a school to obtain a disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau a substitute teacher must apply for vetting through the Teaching Council, and have received an email from the Teaching Council containing a link to their vetting disclosure, which can be accessed by potential employers through Digitary (the Teaching Council's online portal).
