Learning School Project


The Learning School Project, which was funded by Teacher Education Section of the Department of Education and Science, was an action research project undertaken over two years in Region Four of the Education Centre Network. Region Four includes the centres in Counties Cork, Kerry and Limerick. The project sought to:

  • develop an increased awareness of what constitutes a learning school
  • support school-based activities promoting the on-going development of the learning school
  • enhance the capacity of individual teachers to contribute to the learning school, and
  • nurture teacher leadership in schools.

It involved fifteen schools, the collaboration of the regional Education Centres and the support services, SLSS, LDS, SESS and SDPI, under the direction of Dr. David Tuohy, Academic Advisor to the project.
