FOI Request - Teaching Wrong Subject

Request 101003204611

In your local authorities Secondary Schools:

1. In the current academic year how many teachers are teaching classes on a  regular basis despite not being a specialised teacher in that subject?

By this I am not referring teachers covering for ill staff. But for a sustained period of time where there is no teacher.

2. If this is the case what is the primary subject for teachers who are filling the teaching gap and what subject are they teaching?

Response 31-01-2023

1. 7 teachers

2. Home Economics being covered by Art & English Teachers;  Music being covered by English & Modern Language Teachers;  ICT being covered by Physics Teacher; BGE (Broad General Education) Numeracy being covered by Physics Teacher & a Primary Qualified Teacher
