Mullan welcomes progress on funding for substitute teachers

Sinn Féin Education spokesperson Karen Mullan MLA has welcomed progress on funding to ensure substitute teachers are supported through the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The Foyle MLA said:

 

”Today at the Education Committee department officials confirmed that a proposal for funding to support substitute teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic has been made by Education and Finance to the British Treasury.

 

“Crucially, officials confirmed that even if bid is unsuccessful, they will provide support out of existing resources

 

“This is welcome news. Substitute teachers play a pivotal role in the day-to-day running of schools across the north and we firmly believe they should be protected throughout this crisis.”
