Towards Leadership in CEIST Schools

"Leadership is always connected to purpose" (John L. Sullivan) and therefore, as you teach within a CEIST school, we wish to enrich your purpose and cultivate your leadership capacity.

We invite your participation in a four week programme, funded by CEIST and aimed at developing particular leadership competencies, in order to support those responsible in their roles as educators within the voluntary secondary sector.

In addition to personal and professional development for the future, participants will connect with others from within the CEIST school community and a certificate of participation will be issued on conclusion.

Eight training sessions will be conducted in total with 4 each taking place in Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork and at Coláiste na Toirbhirte, Bandon. 

The training sessions will run from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on each night.
