Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made).

Employment of teachers by the Council

143.—(1) The Council may—

(a)employ all such teachers as are required on the staffs of Catholic maintained schools;

(b)with the approval of the Department, employ teachers (to be called “supply teachers”) for the purposes of temporarily filling vacancies which may arise in the staffs of Catholic maintained schools.

(2) Supply teachers employed by the Council may, with the approval of the Council, work in a controlled school, a voluntary school other than a Catholic maintained school or a grant-maintained integrated school if so requested by the managers of that school.

(3) Within such time after the appointed day as the Department may direct, the Council shall prepare and submit to the Department a scheme providing for the procedures to be followed by—

(a)the Council;

(b)the diocesan education committees established under paragraph 3 of Schedule 8; and

(c)the Boards of Governors of Catholic maintained schools,

in relation to the appointment of teachers under paragraph (1).

(4) Before preparing a scheme under paragraph (3) the Council shall consult the Board of Governors of every Catholic maintained school.

(5) In preparing a scheme under paragraph (3) the Council shall take into account any guidance given by the Department, after consultation with the Council and such other persons as appear to the Department to be concerned, as to the provisions it regards as appropriate for inclusion in a scheme under that paragraph.

(6) A scheme under paragraph (3) shall require the Council to appoint a panel of assessors in relation to each diocesan education committee and shall make provision for members of that panel to give advice and assistance to the diocesan education committee or the Board of Governors of a Catholic maintained school in relation to any functions of that committee or Board under the scheme.

(7) The Department may, after making such modifications (if any) in a scheme submitted to it by the Council as after consultation with the Council it considers necessary or expedient, approve the scheme.

(8) It shall be the duty of the bodies mentioned in paragraph (3) to give effect to the provisions of a scheme under that paragraph which has been approved by the Department.

(9) Where—

(a)the Council fails to submit a scheme to the Department under paragraph (3) by the date directed by the Department; or

(b)it appears to the Department that a scheme submitted by the Council as required by that paragraph does not accord with any guidance given by it for the purposes of this Article and cannot be made to do so merely by modifying it,

the Department may, after consultation with the Council and such other persons as appear to the Department to be concerned, make a scheme which shall be treated for the purposes of paragraphs (8) and (10) as if it had been prepared by the Council and approved by the Department under this Article.

(10) The Council may at any time, and shall if the Department so directs, prepare and submit to the Department a revised scheme or an amendment to the existing scheme and paragraphs (4) to (9) (except (9)(a)) shall apply in relation to any such revised scheme or amendment as they apply in relation to the scheme.
