One Day Seminar

PDST will run a series of one-day seminars for primary school principals during February and March 2019.  The seminars are for primary school principals and will focus on the areas of An Plean Scoile and Managing School Priorities. Further information and applications will be on this page in the near future.

 

Overview:

 

One Day Seminars are offered to school leaders. The purpose of the ‘One Day Seminar’ is to address current areas of concern, such as SSE, as raised by school leaders in the feedback evaluations from our core leadership programmes. The outline below serves as an insight into the various topics addressed at these seminars over the past two academic years. Substitute cover is provided by the DES for the seminars for teaching principals and it is anticipated that this will continue for future seminars of this nature to ensure maximum access for school principals. Our  seminars are also offered through the medium of the Irish language in Gaeltacht areas and in a number of central locations.
