Employ an Irish Language Assistant in your school
The Irish Language Assistants programme is open to all schools in Northern Ireland where Irish is taught. Apply here
Registration with Schools Online will also enable you to access a range of free services, including grants and projects to develop your international partnerships, classroom materials, professional development opportunities and a partner searching tool for international partners.
Applications for the Irish Language Assistants programme 2021-22 will open soon.
Every year, we seek to recruit fluent, and preferably native speakers of Irish to work in schools throughout Northern Ireland to help support the teaching and learning of Irish.
Successful applicants are matched to placements offered by schools for one academic year only, after which they may re-apply to the programme for a further year. Hours of work per week depend upon the requests we receive from schools and upon your own availability and mobility.
