Teacher shortage

There is still time to apply for our Spring 2023 intake to the Professional Master of Education (PME). The application deadline is coming up in a little over a week on Thursday, 9 February.

If you are ready to interview and you meet the entry requirements, to apply for the PME in Post-Primary Education,  you will need your official undergraduate transcripts, completed Subject Declaration Form and a reference. To apply for the PME in Primary Education, you will need your official undergraduate transcripts, Leaving Certificate document from the State Examinations Commission or CAO and a reference.

Not quite ready to interview or don’t have your documents to hand? We are also open for Autumn 2023 — you are welcome to start your application now. We strongly encourage applicants to submit their completed application form as early as possible. If you are in the final year of your degree or are scheduled to re-sit your Leaving Certificate this June, you can apply for Autumn 2023, pending these results. If successful in your application, you will be issued with an offer on a conditional basis. If you want to begin your teaching journey in 2023, apply today.

Soaring Demand for Teachers

There is a strong demand, both at home and abroad for teachers who qualified in Ireland. In fact, the current teacher shortage crisis in Ireland requires Education Minister Norma Foley to put in place a variety of measures to support schools and their students. Hibernia College student teachers complete 24 weeks in total of school experience throughout the programme at a minimum of two different schools. This experience allows them to develop connections at various schools to help pave the way for future employment.

Secure Your Place

Apply now to secure your place for 2023. You will be able to reject, accept or postpone your offer for up to one year, as long as the entry requirements remain unchanged. If you are heading away for the summer, now is the time to plan for Autumn. Ireland needs good teachers — why not secure your place to become a primary or post-primary teacher?

If you have any queries about the programme, application or the documents required to apply, our Enrolment Advisors are here to help. You can schedule a call for a time most convenient for you.
