I had a very interesting Hangout conversation last night on the subject of continued teacher registration versus Garda Vetting. I was amazed if not bewildered to learn that the majority of early retirees did not renew their registration. They were under the illusion that they did not require Garda Vetting or registration with the Teaching Council to work occasionally as a substitute or temporary teacher. I intend to keep my registration current as I hope to work with children in the coding and podcasting arenas. Scratch, Minecraft and the Raspberry Pi are excellent platforms for bored and/or gifted primary school children.
