Provision options available

Unread post by admin_bbw » Oct 24th, '17, 14:33

Before we outline the basic info, it's important to note that the scheme only runs in the months of June (secondary students) and July (primary students). There are two options home and school based.

The home based is the one that we primarily cover. The school based is managed and run solely by participating schools, but you should be aware that not all schools offer it.

Depending on your child’s medical needs you may have other tuition options available to you throughout the school year.

1) Who’s eligible to apply for the home based scheme?

Pupils with a formal ASD diagnosis who are enrolled in a mainstream class are eligible for the home based programme.

Also pupils enrolled in a special school or in a special class in a mainstream school and who have an ASD diagnosis and/or a severe/profound General Learning Disability are eligible for home based provision.

Note: Where a pupil’s school is providing the school based scheme the pupil will not be eligible for the home based programme. If however a participating school does not offer the scheme for the full 4 weeks a home based application can be sent to cover the balance of the available weeks.

2) When do you apply?

The Dept of Ed usually release application forms in April each year. We keep followers notified on the release via our FB and Twitter pages and you can also register your interest directly with the Dept and they will notify you.

3) Who can offer tuition to your child?

3a) Tutors / teachers must be registered and have current Garda vetting through the Teaching Council of Ireland. If not, they will be rejected by the Dept for tuition services. You can check the registration status of a teacher directly on the Teaching Councils website using http://www.teachingcouncil.ie/en/Regist ... -Register/

3b) With the home base scheme children receive 10 hours tuition per week over 4 weeks.

4) How can you find a teacher?

Like you we’re parents that found it hard to get teachers to do tuition for us, as there are no extensive lists of available teachers kept by anyone. This is the very reason we setup this Notice Board (https://JulyProvision.com), it’s listed by School Type, Province and County.

When a parent or teacher puts up a new posting, to max exposure, we put links to the posts up on our FB and Twitter pages. With over 5300 FB followers and a growing Twitter following across the country, posts are guaranteed to get plenty of coverage.

The posts are anonymous and contact details can be shared by Private Message via the notice board. If your child is eligible for the scheme it is very important that you get your application in at the earliest possible date. As part of the application process you must supply a teachers council registration number and address details, so, be sure to get started early.

5) What if I don't have a teacher when the applications forms are released?

If at the time the application forms are released you don't have a teacher organised just send the partially completed application form in anyway. It will be returned to you for completion, but will be deemed received on the initial delivery date. Do ensure to send the completed forms back to them asap.

A more extensive set of details is available from the Depts own website covering both the Home and School based scheme at this web address https://www.education.ie/en/Parents/Ser ... Based.html

If you have any questions about the scheme and how it works please feel free to message us or alternatively email us using Support@JulyProvision.com.
