In September 2018 Maynooth University launches a yearlong Foundation Course for Aspiring Teachers. The course aims to diversify the Irish classroom by fostering a culture among students from the most educationally disadvantaged groups to consider the teaching profession as a desirable and achievable career option. The yearlong preparation course will support students academically, personally and socially; providing a pathway to degree courses within the Maynooth University in both primary and secondary education.
If you are Traveller/Roma and would like to know more about this you can come to Pavee Point on Wednesday 28th of March at 2.30pm and speak with Katriona O’ Sullivan from Maynooth University. Let us know if you’d like to attend by email firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘Turn to Teaching’ in the subject line.
