The Migrant Teacher Project aims to increase the participation of Immigrant Internationally Educated Teachers (IIETs) in the Irish primary and post-primary education sectors. Established by Marino Institute of Education with the support of National Integration Funding from the Department of Justice and Equality, the project provides information, advice and training to teachers who have qualified outside of Ireland, to help them to continue their profession in Irish primary and post-primary schools.

All teachers who wish to work in publicly funded schools in Ireland must register with the Teaching Council of Ireland. The Council examines the qualifications of teachers qualified outside Ireland, and sometimes identifies 'shortfalls' that must be addressed prior to full registration. The Migrant Teacher Project aims to work with immigrant teachers to support them through the process of registration and seeking employment.

The Project also provides a Bridging Programme to further enhance teachers' professional development and qualifications, and their opportunities for securing employment in Irish schools. The first of these programmes ran from January to May 2019, and a second programme will run from November 2019.
