Review of Teacher Allowances

 

 

Review of Teacher Allowances

In 2012 there was a public service-wide review of allowances and premium payments – including allowances for teachers.  All new allowances were suspended pending that review.  Circular Letter 0008/2013 details the outcome of that review as it applies to teachers.

Unclaimed Qualification Allowances

In situations where a teacher had an entitlement to a qualification allowance prior to 05th December 2011 and has failed to claim this allowance, this should be done within a period of 3 months from the date of CL 0008/2013 i.e. by 25/04/2013.

For further information on entitlements to qualification allowances, see Appendices 4-7 to the Circular.  It should be noted that these appendices do not apply in the case of teachers employed on a casual basis.

***Circular Letter 0008/2013 now supercedes Circular Letter 0003/2012 (as it applies to teachers) & Circular Letter 0070/2011.
