Training Courses For Boards of Management
Educate Together are holding training for boards of management on Module 2: Appointment Procedures (Recruitment) on Saturday 13th April 2013 at The Clarion Hotel, IFSC, Dublin 1. This module is particularly relevant for Principals and Chairpersons of Boards of Management. The training will begin at 10am and finish at 3pm. Tea/Coffee will be served on arrival and sandwiches will be provided at lunchtime. Please RSVP to Jarlath.email@example.com to book your place as soon as possible. Final numbers will be confirmed on Wednesday 9 April 2013. This face-to-face training is contains the same content as the online Module 2- Appointment Procedures available on our moodle site. If you have already completed the module online there is no need to attend.
We are currently in the process to trying to arrange further sessions on Relevant Contracts Tax/ VAT for our schools. It is hoped that another Dublin session and possibly one in Cork will be provided before the end of the school year. Updates on the progress of this will be in future newsletters and on the RCT page on our website.
Last week (Wednesday 20th March) board members of the five new schools Ashbourne ETNS, Ballinteer ETNS, Citywest ETNS, Kildare Town ETNS and Stepaside ETNS attended Board of Management training (Module 1) in the Educate Together office in Hogan Place, Dublin 2. This training was provided as an addition to the online BOM training Module 1: The Board as a Corporate Entity. It focussed on practical scenarios and problem solving. Three similar sessions of this module were provided last year for all existing Educate Together schools at that time.
We had hoped to release the third online training module for boards, on Child Protection, early in the New Year however now that the Criminal Justice (Withholding of Offences against Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 is now operative we are reviewing our material to ensure that Boards get the most up to date information possible. This should be available very soon.
