Co. Wexford Education Centre collaborates with Maynooth University and a cluster of post-primary schools on the CPD programme ‘Teaching and Learning for the Twenty-First Century’(TL21). The programme is being extended for a further two-year cycle starting in September 2017.

The programme has a number of key aims, including:

1.      To address the isolation and insulation that teachers can, and do, experience in their day-to-day professional lives.

2.      To strengthen (post-primary) teachers’ capacities as the “authors” of their own work – to encourage and support them in actively engaging with a wider repertoire of active teaching strategies.

3.      To encourage students to become more active and responsible participants in their own learning.

Co. Wexford Education Centre plans to work with up to 5/6 new schools for the next two year cycle. I would like to invite you and/or representatives from your school to an Information Meeting in Co. Wexford Education Centre on:

Wed 29th March from 5 pm to 7 pm

Staff from three schools who participated in the 2015-2017 cycle will make 15 minute presentations outlining their projects during the meeting. These presentations include:

(1) Coláiste an Átha, Kilmuckridge

Theme: Developing a modified vocabulary enrichment programme for First Years

(2) Meán Scoil Gharman, Brownswood, Enniscorthy

Theme: Fostering the reading of novels in Irish among First Years and Second Years.

(3) Gorey Community School

Theme: Promoting independent student learning in Second Year Science, using/testing a variety of teaching methodologies

What is involved for those schools participating?

·         This is a two year programme.

·         There will be 5 workshop sessions in a school year, all taking place from 5.00pm – 7.00pm.

·         Tea/Coffee etc will be available from 4.30pm.

·         No substitution or travel expenses are available from either Co. Wexford Education Centre or the university.

·         The programme is not a series of lectures, but rather it is based on a collaborative and action research approach.

·         Each school may like to suggest the themes or aspects of teaching and learning they would like to address: e.g. assessment, AfL strategies, co-operative learning etc.

·         Each participating school will have the opportunity to progress the theme in their own school and report back on progress to the whole group of schools participating in the programme.

·         No more than five representatives per school, including Principal or Deputy Principal.

·         Accreditation is available for teachers’ interested (Maynooth University Diploma and Masters route).

Please e-mail the name and contact details of any attendee(s) interested in attending the Information Meeting on 29th March. E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
