Refund of Fees

The closing date for receipt of completed applications for the Teacher Fee Refund Scheme 2019/20 was Wednesday 31st March 2021.

No late applications will be considered. We endeavor to process the applications as quickly as possible but it will take a number of months.

We hope to notify applicants on the outcome of their application by the end of July 2021. Your patience is appreciated.

We will not be able to process your application until we have received all outstanding documents.

Courses which qualify should be of benefit to schools, school management and the improvement of teaching and learning. Courses must lead to an award from an appropriate accreditation authority approved by D.E.S. Please note that this scheme excludes courses which result in a qualification in respect of which an allowance is payable. Serving teachers who are fully registered with The Teaching Council are eligible to apply under the scheme. MIE administers the scheme on behalf of the Department. A Monitoring Committee consisting of representatives from teachers unions, school management and D.E.S. oversees the administration process. The scheme does not fund courses which are already part funded by the Department of Education.
