A Chara,

The Teaching Council is delighted to announce that from 23 August to 31 December 2021, all registered teachers will have free access to a new online personal and professional development platform. 

About the platform:

The online platform, called Zhrum, uses coaching methodologies and a reflective approach to provide a holistic personal development experience. It enables users to build on their existing strengths while developing new ones, at a time and place that suits them.

What’s in it for me? 

When it comes to personal development, it can sometimes be hard to know where best to begin. Zhrum enables users to navigate a broad variety of topics and then choose the ones that are most relevant to their learning needs. It is underpinned by a reflective and self-directed approach to learning, which is entirely consistent with the flexible and learner-driven approach in Cosán, the national framework for teachers’ learning. 

It is also well aligned with Droichead, the professional induction framework for newly qualified teachers (NQTs). It could be used by NQTs to help them to meet their professional learning needs, with the support of their more experienced colleagues. For example, NQT’s could, if they wished, use Zhrum, and their key learnings from that process, to support or inform a professional conversation with their Professional Support Teams. 

We would encourage all teachers, whether newly qualified or more experienced, to try out this free resource over the coming months to support their personal and professional growth and assist them in addressing any challenges they may face in their practice.
How do I avail of the offer?
In partnership with the Teaching Council of Ireland, Zhrum is free to access for all teachers until 31 December 2021. If you’re keen to reach your full potential, personally and professionally, we would encourage you to avail of this unique offer. To do so, you need to follow three simple steps:

  1. Register here.
  2. Sign up for an account using your preferred method (Social / Email)
  3. Once you access the platform, you can ‘upgrade’ your account via the ‘profile’ page and insert the token code below to unlock full access.

If you have any questions please contact

What if I want to continue using Zhrum after the free trial?
Engagement with this free trail is on an entirely opt-in basis, and there is no obligation on any teacher to do so. Teachers who choose to do so are not committing themselves to any further engagement with the Zhrum platform once the free trail has concluded, and there will be no auto-renewal of membership following the trial. The Teaching Council is keen to support teachers’ in engaging in ongoing learning, and has provided a wealth of resources to support their learning, and their ongoing reflection on that learning. See for example, the Using Research in Our School resource, and the bank of reflection resources on our website. If the level of engagement with Zhrum over the period of the trial is significant, thereby demonstrating a high demand for such a resource among the teaching profession, the Council will explore how teachers might be provided with access to such a platform on a more sustainable basis.
