These were the resolutions passed at the Extraordinary General Meeting and the Annual General Meeting of Gaeloideachas on 22 April, 2023.

Special motion proposed at the Extraordinary General Meeting

This Conference asks that the constitution of the organisation be amended to give naíonraí the opportunity to become members of Gaeloideachas and, accordingly, to put forward resolutions and nominations.

Proposed by: Bord Stiúrtha Gaeloideachas

Teacher supply

This Conference ask the Department of Education to allow schools to advertise jobs as soon as their own panels have been cleared.

Proposed by: Gaelscoil Baile Brigín

Special education

This Conference asks the Department of Education to ensure that allowances for Special Needs Assistant are announced in April/May each year.

This Conference asks the Department of Education and the National Council for Special Education to review the existing criteria for the appointment of Special Needs Assistants and to expand those same criteria.

This Conference asks the Department of Education and the National Council for Special Education to urgently review the process to apply for Special Needs Assistants.

Proposed by: Gaelscoil Baile Brigín

This Conference asks the Department of Education and the National Council for Special Education to give a written confirmation that Irish is the language of employment, teaching and learning in any special class operating in L1 schools.

Proposed by: Scoil Náisiúnta na Rinne

Irish-medium early years – Na Naíonraí

This Conference asks the Department of Children to reinstate the subsidy scheme for naíonraí to tackle the current recruitment crisis in the sector. This scheme will help with the sustainability of Irish language services, to ensure that there will be the option of immersion education at pre-school level.

Proposed by: Bord Stiúrtha Gaeloideachas

Immersion education internationally

The community of this gaelscoil recommends that Gaeloideachas develops a pilot initiative that fosters a partnership between Irish-medium/Gaeltacht schools in Ireland and immersion schools abroad under the Erasmus Program in order to share good practice, strengthen the understanding of immersion education and broaden networking across immersion education practitioners.

Proposed by: Gaelscoil na nDéise

Language requirements for initial teacher education

This Conference recommends that no change be made to the language requirements for entry into teacher training colleges, especially regarding the results of the Leaving Certificate.

This Conference requests that the TEG system be used to improve the quality of student teachers’ Irish.

Proposed by: Bord Stiúrtha

Polasaí don Oideachas lán-Ghaeilge

This Conference asks the Department of Education to develop and publish a Policy for Irish-medium Education outside of the Gaeltacht that is strong, thorough and comprehensive.

Proposed by: Bord Stiúrtha

Additional resolution

This Conference welcomes the decision taken by the Minister of Education not to implement the amendment whereby Paper 1 Irish in the Leaving Certificate would be held at the end of Year 5 in the 2023/2024 school year and the Conference asks that the Minister withdraw this recommendation entirely.

Proposed by: Bunscoil Sancta Maria
