23rd February 2023
In line with the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation’s commitment to the principles of equality, inclusion and diversity (EID) and further to a resolution passed at Congress 2022, the union has set up a dedicated EID hub on our website.
This repository provides members with access to helpful resources and information on these important topics.
Included in the hub are links to recent webinars hosted by the union, a list of organisations the INTO is actively working with in this space and links to resources and content published recently.
As more information and resources become available, they will be added to this section of the website.
World Book Day
In advance of World Book Day on Thursday, 2 March and allied to the above work, the INTO has a number of resources available to members that will support the celebration of this year’s event in classrooms. The union has collated a list of books that explore the theme of EID which can be viewed here.
In addition, the INTO collaborated with Children’s Books Ireland to host a webinar on Exploring Diversity through Children’s Books. The webinar provides guidance for teachers on diverse and inclusive books that are suitable for the classroom. A recording of the webinar is available here.
