About Us

The Kildare Education Centre has been offering professional development opportunities to the education community of Co Kildare, east Offaly and west Wicklow, since 1997. A programme of Local courses, projects and initiatives to support teaching and learning in our schools is offered annually.

The Centre is also involved in the development and provision of CPD opportunities at a regional, national and international level. In partnership with the PDST - Technology in Education, the Centre offers a national and local ICT programme that is both Centre and school based. Working with and alongside the PDST the Centre supports the implementation of the National Strategy to improve Literacy and Numeracy. We support the consolidation of curricular review through supporting Primary teachers (TPCs) and Post primary teachers (TPNs). In partnership with the NIPT programme we offer support for NQTs through the NIPT Programme and Professional Support Groups (PSGs) The Centre also works with the SESS to support teachers working in special education.

The Centre is managed by a Management Committee that is elected annually at the AGM by the members of the Centre. The Director of the Centre is Dominic McEvoy.

 

Kildare Education Centre wishes to acknowledge the funding provided by the Teacher Education Section of the Department of Education and Skills with assistance from the National Development Plan.
