Droichead: Exploring and Eliciting Perspectives, Experiences and Narratives
In autumn 2018 the Council commissioned Marino Institute of Education and Trinity College, Dublin to research teachers' experiences of Droichead, the professional induction framework for teachers. This research project will explore a range of topics, including the roles and responsibilities of those engaging in, and supporting, the Droichead process, resourcing and supports for the process, the impact of Droichead on school culture, and the connections between the Droichead process and initial teacher education. It will focus in particular on small schools, Gaelscoileanna, DEIS (Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools) schools, and special education settings. It is anticipated that it will be completed by autumn 2021 and will inform the Council's review of policy.
