There are two Schools Directorates in ETBI – ‘CNS & ETB Patronage’ and ‘Post-Primary Schools’. These two Directorates support Ireland’s 16 Education and Training Boards (ETBs) in a number of areas, including:
- Teaching and learning
- Leadership and management
- Expansion of ETB schools
- Patronage related issues
- Patrons’ Curricula development and implementation
The Directorates also work closely with numerous external stakeholders, including the Department of Education (DE), other management bodies and relevant organisations.
