There has been a lack of successful applications made by unemployed teachers
in Ireland regarding exam post roles.
According to new figures released by the State Examinations Commission (SEC), just 250 teachers currently out of work had their submissions to monitor exam halls this year accepted, the Irish Independent reports.
It was shown that this number makes up just five per cent of the 4,861 superintendent appointments made so far for the Junior and Leaving Certificates in 2013.
An SEC spokeswoman explained that while most unemployed teachers who applied for these posts were successful, those who were not given a position are likely to have not met all of the necessary criteria.
Indeed, it was shown that 287 unemployed teachers applied for these roles, with 35 withdrawing from the process and two failing to land a post.
The representative explained the SEC prioritises applications for such jobs from teachers in non-permanent positions.
