Teacher Professional Learning 2019/20 (STEPS)

Dear Colleagues

We will be running five regional cohorts this year based in the following venues:

  • Northwest Teachers’ Centre
  • Omagh Technology Centre
  • Newry Teachers’ Centre
  • Antrim EA Centre
  • Dundonald EA Centre

The date beside each option is an indication of provisonal start date only.  01 Nov 2019.  Dates to be comfirmed at a later stage.

The programme is suitable for newly appointed middle leaders or those who have been in a middle leader post for less than 4 years.  The programme will consist of 6 full days beginning in January 2019 and concluding in April 2020.

There is no substitute cover for this programme so applicants must seek approval from their principal prior to applying.

A small number of reserve places for each option will become available once all places are taken.  The reserve places apply to this year only and won’t be carried through to next year’s programme.  Should someone withdraw from the programme you will be contacted via email and offered a place.  We will only contact you if a place becomes available.
