Integrated Education benefits schools by giving them the opportunity to:

  • serve the whole community, which can increase the number of children at the school;
  • possibly have a wider catchment area, which may increase the enrolment;
  • have a better chance for a sustainable future in the face of changing demographics;
  • access small amounts of funding for Catholic teachers and training; and
  • become a member of NICIE , which provides access to a range of events such as training, annual conferences, membership of Schools, Teachers and Early Years Committees and Association of Principal Teachers in Integrated Schools (APTIS).
