Any queries regarding these meetings should be made to the DES.


Participants will receive an email confirmation of application. Places are limited and when the venue has reached full capacity online application form will not operate.

Due to space constraints only one nominee from every school may attend. Each nominee should be in a position of leadership in the school and have responsibility for Special Education provision. Participants will require permission from the Board of Management to attend. Typically, substitution will only be allowed to teaching principals or to teachers with primary responsibility for students with a special educational need and if it is deemed absolutely essential by the Principal.

Registration and tea/coffee: 10am. Seminar begins: 10.30am. Seminar concludes: 12.30pm

Date: Thursday, 9 March 17
