Garda Vetting Update
14th October 2015 | What's New
The Department of Education and Skills has published an update in relation to Garda Vetting on the Garda Vetting page of the Department’s website.
The update reflects, inter alia, the following;
- While it is anticipated that the amendments to the Vetting Act will be brought forward during the current DÃ¡il session, it is expected that the Vetting Act will not be commenced before the end of 2015.
- Schools and teachers are advised that Circular 0063/2010 will continue to apply to the end of the current school term i.e. 22 December 2015, at least.
- Schools and teachers have, therefore, until the end of the current school term i.e. 22 December 2015, at least, to make the advance preparations as set out in Circular 0025/2015. Registered teachers should note however that the Teaching Council has, for now, ceased taking new applications for the forthcoming statutory vetting disclosures under these advance preparations until a more definitive date for the commencement of the Vetting Act is known.
