There are 21 full time and 9 part time Teacher Education Centres in Ireland. These centres are represented by the Association of Teacher Educations Centres Ireland (ATECI)
ATECI describes the principal activity of Education Centres (originally Teachers’ Centres) as:
"to organize the local delivery of national programmes of teacher professional development on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills. Centres also organize a varied local programme of activities for teachers, school management and parents in response to demand. Education Centres are statutory bodies and are managed by voluntary Management Committees elected annually"
Access to the websites of each Education Centre may be found on the ATECI website
