As you are aware, a number of Induction workshops became available online during Term 3 2019-20. That online suite continues to be available to NQTs who require them throughout the Term ahead (2020-21) via the NIPT online learning platform. Unfortunately, face-to-face workshops will not run in Term 1 2020-21 as the Induction workshops will be entirely online for this Term.
Two new online workshops will be added to the suite mid-way through this Term:
As in previous years, NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on the Teaching Council website and receive a confirmation email from the Teaching Council before registering for Cluster Meeting 1. Cluster Meeting 1 will be available online only during Term 1 2020. It is anticipated that this provision will begin during early October via the NIPT online learning platform. NIPT will monitor the completion of Cluster Meeting 1 during this time. The NIPT website will be updated when this becomes available and the Teaching Council will publish the date on which applications for the Droichead process will open.
A delivery of some very special books will be arriving in Primary schools towards the end of September...
For 2020, the Bookville Festival has been re-imagined into a free book packed with fun, exciting and interactive activities, based on some of the best contemporary children’s authors and illustrators.
Featuring Horrible Histories, Helena Duggan's A Place Called Perfect, Cartoon Saloon's newest animation WolfWalkers, and, as Gaeilge, Patricia Forde's Ar Strae and Sadhbh Devlin's Beag Bídeach...and many more.
Designed for 5 to 12 year olds, and based around the Primary Curriculum, Bookville in a Book is ideal for use in a classroom setting for group or individual activities.
Bookville in a Book - a welcome treat!
Bookville is brought to you by the Kilkenny Library Service and the Kilkenny Arts Office.
The Annual South Eastern Educational Research Conference, hosted by Kilkenny Education Centre, Waterford Teachers' Centre and Co. Wexford Education Centre will take place on Saturday October 10th 2020 in Kilkenny Education Centre, in a safe, socially distanced environment. The proceedings will also be live streamed on the internet and we hope many colleagues will join us online.
In conjunction with this Conference, the Management Committees of the three Centres are announcing the second Louise Madigan Bursary, of €1,500, in memory of our dear departed colleague, Louise Madigan, Co-Ordinator of the Conference (2016 - 2019). At our Conference on October 10th, this bursary will be presented to a teacher, from Education Centre Network Region 3, who is engaged in research for a Post-Graduate Masters or Doctorate in the area of education, to assist with the costs of this work.
