Sub Seeker service
The Irish Primary Principals’ Network (IPPN) and the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals (NAPD) have created the online Sub Seeker service to match available teachers with short term substitute vacancies in schools. Sub Seeker is accessed from educationposts.ie and is live now.
Teachers available for substitute work and schools seeking to recruit substitute teachers must register with the service, which is free to use.
- The teacher profile includes qualifications and experience and the teacher selects up to 6 counties in which they are willing to work.
- A teacher indicates his/her availability for the next 7 days.
- The service is mobile compatible and teachers receive work offers directly online and via email.
- Over 800 teachers, from the primary and post primary sectors, have registered as the system goes live.
