From September 2017, NQTs who are engaging in the Droichead process must attend one cluster meeting per term (2 hour duration), while undertaking the process. A minimum of 3 cluster meetings will be available each year.

NB: All NQTs engaging in the Droichead process must attend Cluster Meeting 1 before attending Cluster 2 and 3.

Attendance for the full two-hour cluster is a requirement. There are attendance procedures and protocols which must be adhered to by NQTs with regard to all clusters. This is to ensure fairness and consistency in approach for all Droichead NQTs.
As per the workshop programme, NQTs must register with the Education Centre to attend a cluster meeting. The National Cluster Meeting Schedule will be sent to all NQTs who submit a DR1 Form to www.lec.ie when applying to undertake the Droichead process. In addition to this, NQTs who are engaging in the Droichead process should also engage in one other professional learning activity. This may include attendance at an NIPT workshop.

At cluster meetings, NQTs will present Form D to be stamped by the facilitator as proof of attendance. Form D is available at www.teachingcouncil.ie.  
Please have this form with you on the night.
