DE invites applications to GTCNI


The GTCNI is the professional registration and regulatory body for teachers in the north of Ireland.

The Council comprises 33 members including four members appointed by the Department. Departmental appointees need not be directly associated with the education service, but may have gained experience from other backgrounds including business or commercial life and/or involvement in the community. For example, legal skills, human resource, corporate governance or financial experience would be considered beneficial to the overall composition of the Council.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, non-traditional backgrounds, members of ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, those under 30 years of age and from the private and voluntary sectors.

The Department is committed to the principles of public appointments based on merit with independent assessment, openness and transparency of process. It is also committed to providing equality of opportunity for all applicants and to improving diversity and eradicating under-representation on the boards of its Arm’s Length Bodies.

The Department intends to appoint representatives until October 2019. The time commitment is anticipated to be approximately 9 days per annum. Members are not remunerated but are eligible to claim travel and other expenses incurred while carrying out their Council duties.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Thursday 10 December 2015.

Further details of the role and full selection criteria are set out in the application pack which is available on nidirect - Public appointment vacanciesexternal link or by emailing: [email protected]
