PDST Secondment Opportunity for Team Leader
The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) is a cross-sectoral support service under the remit of the Teacher Education Section of the Department of Education and Skills (DES) which offers professional development support to primary and post-primary teachers and principals.
The work of the PDST contributes to school improvement by providing high quality CPD on curricular and educational issues, fostering reflective practice and ongoing development among teachers.
Amongst the priorities for the Department of Education and Skills for the coming years is the implementation of proposals to improve Literacy and Numeracy in both primary and post-primary schools. Other major priorities include supporting school self-evaluation and curricular reform.
The PDST currently has a full-time secondment opportunity for the position of Team Leader, in the Numeracy area.
All applicants must be qualified, serving teachers/principals, fully registered with the Teaching Council, must currently hold a post in a recognised primary or post-primary school or be on secondment from such a position.
The Team Leader will lead a national team to provide local, regional and national professional development and support for teachers in priority educational areas.
