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.

All training sessions will run from 5.00pm – 7.30pm at the Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork and at Coláiste na Toirbhirte, Ard Aoibhinn, Bandon.

Please note 4 extra sessions will take place at the Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick on four dates over March and April.

Dates and times to be added on this page in due course.
