Teacher Network

Help us develop our Teachers and Schools Programme

Deadline extended to Friday 11 October

While we received a lot of interest from teachers following our call for participants earlier this year, we want the Teachers Network to be as inclusive as possible, with every county represented. As such, we have extended the deadline, and invite teachers from the following counties to apply:

  • Carlow
  • Clare
  • Leitrim
  • Limerick
  • Longford
  • Mayo
  • Offaly
  • Roscommon
  • Westmeath

This year we are developing new resources and outreach programming, taking the Gallery off-site to schools across the country that may find it difficult to travel to us. The Teachers Network will help us shape this programme, guiding our research, planning and evaluation.

The network will primarily exist online, but each year we will hold programme-development workshops at the Gallery, where participants will help co-produce new programming. We also hope that members will host local events, helping to share learning and resources with their peers.

Network members will:

  • Provide feedback on existing schools programmes
  • Be invited to attend programme-development workshops and help co-produce new programming
  • Trial new resources and give feedback
  • Pilot new off-site workshops
  • Actively contribute to online discussions
  • Champion and challenge the work of the National Gallery of Ireland
  • Host local network meetings and help shape the future of the network

Benefits include:

  • Travel expenses to programme-development workshops
  • Free workshops for your class when piloting and evaluating programmes
  • Free entry to selected talks and events
  • CPD opportunity
  • Peer support
  • Contribution to national programmes
