The mission of the Department of Education and Skills is to provide high-quality education which will (a) enable individuals to achieve their full potential and to participate fully as members of society; and (b) contribute to Ireland's social, cultural and economic development. Chief among the Department's priorities are the promotion of equity and inclusion, quality outcomes and lifelong learning; planning for education that is relevant to personal, social, cultural and economic needs; and enhancement of the capacity of the Department for service delivery, policy formulation, research and evaluation. All of our professional development courses for primary school teachers have been approved as CPD by the Department of Education and Science.
CPD College is proud to offer approved online training for the Jolly Phonics programme, the Jolly Grammar and the Jolly Music programme on behalf of Jolly Learning.
The Jolly Phonics online training course has participants in over 100 countries and is widely regarded by teachers as a key element in the successful implementation of the Jolly Phonics programme.
We are delighted to have reached agreement with Oxford University Press to offer an online training course in the highly respected Numicon progamme in Ireland. This course has proven very attractive to both mainstream and learning support teachers who wish to integrate Numicon activities into their teaching.
