Education Centre Network
The principal activity of Education Centres (originally Teachers' Centres) is to organise the local delivery of national programmes of teacher professional development on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills. Centres also organise a varied local programme of activities for teachers, school management and parents in response to demand. Education Centres are statutory bodies and are managed by voluntary management committees elected annually.
There are 21 full-time and 9 part-time education centres.
