The Fanore School Case


Sean McMahon A Teaching Principal in West Clare, member I.N.T.O. Executive since 2007, previously elected to the Principals’ and  Deputy Principals’ National Committee,  served as Branch Secretary/Chairperson I was honoured to be elected INTO President 2014/15.

Teaching Council Responsibilities such as Registration, Induction/Probation including “Droichead” in tandem with “Fitness to Practice” and "Cosán" will impact professionally and personally on all teachers. I am most concerned that these initiatives will be implemented by the Teaching Council unilaterally without appropriate consultation and agreement of teachers. For my part I would vehemently oppose this. The Teaching Council must listen to the voice of teachers and having listened take cognisance of that perspective in its deliberations, initiatives and policies. If elected, I will work diligently to promote and enhance our profession through bringing that “voice” to the Teaching Council table; - strongly, forcibly, persuasively and honestly.

Tá sé thar a bheith tábhachtach go nglacfaidh gach múinteoir páirt sa toghacháin seo agus go gcloisfear guth an mhúinteora go soiléir ag na cruinnithe den Chomhairle Mhúinteoireachta. Tuigim go maith na fadhbanna ar fad atá os ár gcomhair faoi láthair agus tig leat bheith lán mhuiníneach nach bhfanfaidh mé i mo thost."
