Confirmation of National Conference

The FTA wishes to confirm that our National Conference scheduled for Maynooth on October 11-12th will go ahead as planned. Attendance at same is not contrary to the ASTI’s Industrial Action Directives, as shown by this extract from www.asti.ie Q&A:

“Can I attend in-service or other training that is voluntary?”

“The directives refer to school meetings that take place outside of normal school time, including nationally mandated or school arranged in-service and junior cycle in-service. The directives do not preclude teachers from attending voluntary in-service events outside of school time as long as it is not related to Junior Cycle reform.”
