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

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 usually identifies 'shortfalls' that must be addressed prior to full registration. The Migrant Teacher Project works with these 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 opportunities for securing employment. Applications for the 2020/21 Bridging Programme are now closed. For more information please click here.
