The One Day Seminars are offered to school leaders. The purpose of the ‘One Day Seminars’ is to address current areas of concern 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.
