Voices in Education - What Matters to Local School Communities?

 Invitation to a meeting 

Thursday, 9 February 2023

16.30 - 18.00

This Zoom meeting is a trial engagement which forms part of a wider project funded by the European Union via the Structural Reform Support Programme and in cooperation with the European Commission's DG Structural Reform Support to develop a model of local community engagement to support education policymaking in Ireland. 

Several experimental engagement events have taken place under this project, most recently in Laois and Kerry. This meeting is an opportunity to hear the views of a wider group of people in Ireland, to see if meeting participants have the same experience as those in Laois and Kerry.

Feedback from recent events will be shared and meeting participants will be invited to provide additional insight.

The meeting will be hosted by Chris Chapman from Burren College of Art, and evaluated by the Centre for Effective Services for the purposes of informing the wider project. 

What will be discussed?

  • Consultation processes in education - what would you like to be consulted about, and how?

  • Themes which emerged from previous events, including:
    • the potential for education to be more inclusive and to work better for more people, and
    • time - what gets prioritised in schools and what doesn’t?

Who will be there?

Teachers and parents from across Ireland, as well as representatives from other education organisations, including:

  • Chris Chapman, Burren College of Art (Host)
  • Catherine Doolan, Education Support Centres Ireland
  • Sharon Browne, Kerry ETB
  • Representatives from the Teaching Council and other national bodies, the OECD, and the European Commission

The views expressed herein can in no way be taken to reflect the official opinion of the European Union.
