CPD Reminders:

 1.    DEIS SYMPOSIUM  on Tuesday, 24th October - 2017 - POSTPONED

 2.    CPD on Planning and Implementation of the New Special Education Needs Model.


Circular Letter 14/2017 introduced a revised special education teaching allocation model to mainstream post primary schools from the 2017/18 school year onwards.  This revised allocation model provides for the generation of a school profile to determine the special education teaching allocation.  The circular is accompanied by Guidance for Schools on the organisation, deployment and use of special education teachers to address the need of students with special education needs.  This in-service will address the requirements placed on schools by the new special education model.  Given how important meeting the needs of students with special educational needs is in our school communities this in-service will be provided on a regional basis to facilitate Principals and Deputy Principals in bringing key personnel involved in co-ordination at school level.
