Oide is a new support service for teachers and school leaders, funded by the Department of Education, formed from the integration of four existing support services and launched on September 1, 2023.
The Droichead Induction Division supports the induction of primary and post-primary Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) into the teaching profession. This is in line with the requirements of the Department of Education and with the Teaching Council’s policy on induction – Droichead, The Integrated Professional Induction Framework for NQTs (2017).
The main objective of the Droichead process is to support the professional learning of NQTs during the induction phase, thus laying the foundations for subsequent professional growth and learning.
This section of the website provides information and resources for Principals, Professional Support Teams, NQTs and whole-school communities to ensure a quality induction process.
