INTO has held four youth conferences in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland since 2008. INTO members under the age of 35 years are nominated by their branches and districts to attend the conferences.
The youth conferences generally take place over two days and include plenary sessions where delegates hear from INTO leaders and are addressed by leading figures from the education sector. Delegates also participate in two workshops focusing on the current and future challenges for teachers, and in a social event.
The conferences are an important opportunity for young members to express their views on a range of concerns including secure employment, pay and promotion, mobility and professional challenges.
