Summer Programme

All courses are now fully booked. Click here for individual course details.

EPV Days

Under Rule 58 of the Rules for National Schools, primary teachers are entitled to extra personal vacation days on foot of attending approved professional development courses in the Summer.

Teachers are entitled to take extra personal vacation days in the school year immediately following the completion of the course, in line with Circulars 37/97 and 0035/2009. Primary teachers must apply in writing to their BOM for the use of their EPV days. Boards of Management may decide on the timing of the use of EPV days but this does not remove the entitlement of teachers to take this leave, subject to school procedures.
