Recruitment & Appointment Procedures for SNAs

Aug 16, 2019

The Department of Education & Skills has published Circular 51/2019: Recruitment and Appointment Procedures for Special Needs Assistants (SNAs)

This circular supersedes all previous circulars, memoranda, rules and regulations in relation to the recruitment and appointment procedures for SNAs including Appendix H of the Governance Manual for Primary Schools 2015-2019, Circular 0021/2011 and Circular 0059/2006. This circular can be accessed on the Department’s website under www.education.ie.

Please contact CPSMA with any query on the contents of the circular. The internal arrangements for schools within the Archdiocese of Cashal & Emly, and the Dioceses of Kerry, Killaloe, and Limerick with regards to approval of advertisements by St. Senan's, the appointment of independent assessors, and patron approval of appointments remain unaffected. Please email linda@ldo.ie for assistance on these matters.
