Forbairt is a programme for a school leadership team comprising of the principal and deputy principal and another teacher leader that is constructed on an action learning model and is designed to support school leaders to explore leadership in their context.


A teacher leader is a teacher who is engaged with leadership in your school. They may have a formal leadership role in the school as an Assistant Principal but this is not essential. Schools that do not have a third member of staff are equally eligible to apply for the programme.
