On Friday 29 November the Foundation had the privelege to attend the Association of Community and Comprehensive School's annual In-School Management conference in Cavan, to discuss the aims of both organizations and promote registration for Flag Day 2020.
The work of the association covers three main areas
- advice and support to schools/industrial relations
- national issues – negotiation/policy setting and implementation
- research, development and training
The work of the association is varied and involves a multiplicity of issues at both the level of macro issues at a national level and micro issues that are school specific. There is also a large degree of inter connectivity between both. An issue that is particular to an individual school may have as its consequence implications for all schools nationally.
