EducationPosts.ie was developed by the Irish
Primary Principals’ Network (IPPN) in 2002 to meet the needs of primary school
principals. It has since extended to all education sectors who also have a need
for a dedicated website for education related vacancies. EducationPosts.ie now
serves Pre-School, Primary level, Second level, Third & Higher level and
International & Other education related posts.
IPPN (www.ippn.ie) was established in 1999 to address school leaders’ professional needs. It is now the officially recognised professional body for leaders of Irish primary schools. It is an independent, not-for-profit voluntary association with a local, regional and national presence.
Recognised by the Minister for Education as an official Education Partner, IPPN works with the Department of Education and Skills (DES - www.education.ie), the National Parents’ Council (www.npc.ie), management bodies, unions, education agencies, academic institutions and children’s charities towards the advancement of primary education. IPPN articulates the collective knowledge and professional experience of over 6,400 Principals and Deputy Principals who lead Ireland’s 3,200+ primary schools.
In 2015, IPPN partnered with the DES and the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals (NAPD – www.napd.ie) to found and oversee the Centre for School Leadership (CSL - www.cslireland.ie), which is responsible for the development of CPD programmes for current and aspiring school leaders.
IPPN is a member of the International Confederation of Principals (ICP – www.icponline.org) and works closely with NAPD and the Ontario Principals’ Council (OPC – www.principals.ca). These links play an important role in our research and pursuit of best international practice.
