The NICIE/ RTU (Regional Training Unit) partnership has two main purposes: firstly to enhance and develop the leadership capacity in integrated schools and secondly to support a Vice Principal forum.
In 2011/12 the VP Forum met on four occasions and members enjoyed talks and workshops on subjects as diverse as Public Relations, Inspection and Reading and Mathematics Schemes. The Forum invites visiting speakers who share their expertise with the audience. Attendees report that they particularly enjoy the chance to network and exchange ideas with other colleagues and the sense of community that they feel at these events.
This year the NICIE/RTU partnership also delivered a highly successful summer school for teachers in Integrated schools. If you would like to know more about the Forum please contact the NICIE office.
