Professional Learning Networks for SENCOs working in Primary schools.

This session aims to bring together a network of teachers working in special education in Cork Primary schools. The network aims to provide professional learning, support and networking opportunities for teachers. Trevor and Johanna will facilitate the establishment of the network and will support its development over time. The practical implementation of the network will be decided by its members and professional learning needs will also be identified by members. If you are a special education teacher or a SENCO in a primary school in Cork and would like to find out more about the network please join us.
