Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI) is the representative body for the sixteen Education and Training Boards (ETBs) in Ireland and promotes their interests.  With a team of over 50 empowered people working remotely across Ireland, we deliver high performance and professional services to our ETB members and stakeholders through collaborative and collective efforts. 

In January 2022, we launched our 2022-2024 Strategic Plan with ambition and vision for the next three years. It is a result of many months of information gathering, dialogue, analysis and careful thought by our stakeholders across every discipline, function and activity. 

We are ambitious, talented and passionate about what we do. We have a strong work ethic and dedicated teams that focus on  inspiring, communicating, listening, acknowledging, developing, caring and sharing ideas. 

Our six core values have driven our growth and success.  Our core values are centred on excellence in education, training and support and are underpinned by our other four core values of care, respect, community and equality. These in turn are built on our long history, our strengths and aspirations.  

The culture in ETBI continues to be shaped by the many talented individuals who have a profound belief in the Education and Training sector for the economy, for the sector and for changes in the lives of citizens and communities. 

Working in ETBI allows you to embark on a professional career,  have responsibility and tackle challenges in an environment where talents are appreciated, and new ideas encouraged. We encourage our people to continue to grow and learn and offer excellent training and development opportunities. 

We believe that fostering a diverse and inclusive environment is central to achieving a workplace in which every employee feels that they belong.  We have a wonderful variety of people and cultures across the organisation and promote a positive work environment. Wellbeing, work life balance and happiness are paramount. We ensure our staff stay connected through regular people check-in calls, staff meetings, one-on-one meetings, team meetings,  virtual tea breaks and organised social events.
