Secondary teacher from the West of Ireland suspended over forgery of signatures

A young secondary school teacher was found guilty of professional misconduct after faking two other instructors’ signatures on a document indicating he had finished the necessary teaching practice, reports RTE.

After the teacher admitted to five charges of professional misconduct regarding a form he turned in to the Teaching Council on April 27, 2022, as part of the Droichead induction process for newly qualified teachers, a fitness-to-teach inquiry recommended that he be suspended from the Register of Teachers for one month.

They stated, among other things, that he had affixed the school stamp to the same paper in an inappropriate situation and falsified the signatures of two other professors at the institution, reports RTE.

The instructor, who is from the west of Ireland, acknowledged that he had filled out the form claiming to have fulfilled his criteria for teaching practice and that the information was “true and accurate” even though he knew it wasn’t.

Shane MacSweeney, the teacher’s attorney, said before the Teaching Council investigation that his client recognised both his professional wrongdoing and the violations of the Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers.

The head of the disciplinary committee of the Teaching Council, Mary Magner, issued an order that prevented the identification of the instructor or the institution, reports RTE.
