DE Teachers Pay Team

Payment for all approved periods of substitute teaching is made on a monthly basis by DE Teachers Pay Team

Payment for all approved periods of substitute teaching are made on a monthly basis by DE Teachers Pay Team. The only exception relates to those teachers working in a Voluntary Grammar school, who are paid directly by the school and not the DE Teachers Pay Team.

Prior to the 1 May 2022, in order to have substitute teaching days paid, schools/teachers would have been required to submit a TR23 form for approval to their appropriate employing authority or school for onward submission to DE Teachers Pay Team.  This process has now changed.

As of 1 May 2022, all newly registered GTCNI teachers will be contacted directly by the DE Teachers Pay Team and will be requested to complete and return a TR25 form.

The purpose of the TR25 form will be to obtain all of the required personal information from the teacher directly in order for DE Teachers Pay Team to be prepared for payment should the teacher get booked via NISTR for substitute cover days.

For full details on the new process and useful contact details, please visit the Education NI website to read the new guidance for Principals, Line Managers and Teachers for engaging substitute teachers via NISTR.
