Education Support for Branches

A number of branches have been in contact over recent months requesting talks and in-person support for members, but due to ongoing restrictions, it will not be possible to offer any in-person support to branches for the foreseeable future.

However, a number of live online webinars /seminars (primary & post-primary education) are planned for branch members during May and June. Each branch secretary has been contacted and asked to gather information on possible numbers of members interested and the topics they would like addressed. This information must be sent to Fidelma by April 14th.

Times, dates, and content for each webinar will then be decided, and members will be notified through our website and social media. Please do contact your branch secretary if you have any particular issues you would like addressed in the webinars.

It is important to note that as we will be holding both a transition to primary school webinar and a transition to post-primary school webinar in early May, these topics will not be addressed during the proposed webinar series. Further information on both of these transition webinars will be available on our social media and website in due course.
