The Association of Principal Teachers in Integrated Schools provides an opportunity for head teachers, in primary and post-primary integrated schools, to meet and share areas of common interest.
The APTIS Steering Committee, which meets several times a year, is open to all principals and is the forum where ideas are discussed, statements on areas of interest are agreed and sub-groups represent the principals at various forums such as the Management side committee, meetings with the Education Committee in the Northern Ireland executive and the Integrated Education Review team etc.
In 2016 the elected APTIS office bearers are:
Chairperson: Heather Watson (Pricipal, Phoenix IPS)
Vice-Chair: Mark Weir (Principal Strangford IC)
Treasurer: Nigel Arnold (Principal Glengormley IPS)
APTIS organise two main events a year to allow principals in integrated schools to come together and discuss issues that are relevant to them and to share good practice:
November AGM/Seminar – One day event (attach link to the evaluation)
April APTIS Spring Conference – Two day event (attach link to the programme)
