Following participation on the TAP summer course, Teachers are eligible to apply for an Artist in Residence with a TAP trained Artist in the teachers school.  TAP Residencies take place between October and March of the following school year.  Pre-Covid, each Education Centre could award up to eight (8) face-to-face residencies to participating schools.  However, in 2021, following the TAP Online summer course, 114 Teachers nationwide applied for a residency via an embedded Survey Monkey link on the E-Learn Tralee Moodle platform.  Forty-four (44) newly trained TAP Artists completed the TAP Online Summer Course and are therefore eligible to take part in the TAP Residency programme.  All TAP 2021 Online data was returned to the National Arts in Education Office where Teacher and Artist data were filtered by region and allocated to the ESCI network for matching Teacher and Artist pairs for school residency purposes.

Teacher-Artist Partnership (TAP)  is a unique Department of Education and Skills initiative which commenced on a pilot basis in 2014/15 in response to the objectives outlined in the Arts in Education Charter. This initiative is guided by the principles expressed in the Arts in Education Charter (2012) and Pillar 1 (Creative Youth) of the Creative Ireland Programme (2017–2022).

Nurturing the abilities and commitment of artists and teachers for the promotion of arts-in-education is a central concern of the Arts in Education Charter. One of its major initiatives in this regard was the design and implementation of a pilot teacher-artist CPD Partnership Summer Course. Part of supporting schools in the provision of high quality arts education for children, this pilot arts in education initiative was Association of Teacher Education Centre of Ireland (ATECI) led, in partnership with the Department of Culture Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DCHG), Encountering the Arts Ireland (ETAI) and the Association for Creativity in Arts Education (ACAE).  The initiative is administered by the Education Centre, Tralee. This innovative teacher-artist CPD programme was aimed at developing a model of arts in education CPD for teachers which could be used as a template for the future.

The Pilot Project was researched and the Research Report on this Pilot initiative was launched by both the Minister for Education and Skills and the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in March 2016 and has been published (available on here).

Teacher-Artist Partnership CPD Summer Course & Residency Programme is now mainstreamed and consists of free DES approved (EPV days) Summer Courses operating in each of the 21 full-time Education Centres in Ireland in either July or August each year. Each Course will have 20 primary teachers and 4 professional artists participating. It will be delivered by a trained and experienced Teacher Artist Facilitator Pair. The initiative includes funded Artist in Residency opportunities in which participating teachers and artists work together in collaboration in the School during the following academic year.

prepare an argument using facts and sound research. It also teaches students valuable communication skills and builds confidence. Debates teams consist of 3 speakers, however the debates work really well when you can make it a whole class activity. The Concern Primary Debates
Competition is comprised of a regional stage where schools debate online against schools in their local areas. The regional winners will then progress on to the national competition. The national competition will consist of in person debates where possible for the 2022-2023 school year.

Concern Debate Structure
 
Each school is asked to provide a minimum of 2 adjudicators. The schools engage in the Garda vetting process with the chosen adjudicators.
Adjudicators will be assigned to each debate by the respective schools. However, if for some reason the assigned adjudicators are unavailable, the onus is on the home school to contact neutral adjudicators.
 
 
Three students per team: 
Captain, 
Speaker 2
Speaker 3 
 
Timekeeper 
Chairperson

Each person has 3 minutes for their speech with the Captain speaking twice (once at beginning and once at the end)

We recommend schools have a panel of six students at least in case of illness

Only three students may debate three students on the day of the debate

Schools may have subs and have the whole class involved helping to research motions, acting as timekeeper and /or chairperson

Subject to receiving enough entries the competition will be in a group format.
 

Debate topics, which have been set by Concern, for all group round debates will be issued in advance of the competition commencing.
 
Concern will be organising a national competition so the winners of the Competition will qualify for entry to the National Round.

Schools must agree the time and date of each debate - subject to staying within the designated deadline.

Practice debate(s) can be organised between schools in October - practice debate topic is “Homework is a waste of time for primary school students”

Concern have resources available to help with preparing for the debates - https://www.concern.net/schools-and-youth/debates/primary-school%26sa%3DD%26ust%3D1569928539808000%26usg%3DAFQjCNGnPGLQ3Twaq2pIc4cakNZR9OPbIA&source=gmail&ust=1570016397334000&usg=AFQjCNG0o39O4I8erZ3N1U33_rYa_WzF7A" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204); font-family: Roboto, RobotoDraft, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 1.25rem; white-space: pre-wrap;">https://www.concern.net/schools-and-youth/debates/primary-schoolincluding videos etc.

NEPS 2022

 

National Educational Psychological

Service (NEPS) 2022

Overview of NEPS service

NEPS psychologists work with both primary and post-primary schools and are concerned with learning, behaviour, social and emotional development. Each psychologist is assigned to a group of schools.

NEPS psychologists work in partnership with teachers, parents and children in identifying educational needs. They offer a range of services aimed at meeting these needs, for example, supporting individual students (through consultation and assessment), special projects and research.

Please see Video about the NEPS Services

Please see Video about the NEPS Services

 

 

Model of Service

In common with many other psychological services and best international practice, the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS) has adopted a consultative model of service. The focus is on empowering teachers to intervene effectively with pupils whose needs range from mild to severe and transient to enduring.

Psychologists use a problem solving and solution focused consultative approach to maximise positive outcomes for these pupils. NEPS encourages schools to use a continuum based assessment and intervention process whereby each school takes responsibility for initial assessment, educational planning and remedial intervention for pupils with learning, emotional or behavioural difficulties.

Teachers may consult their NEPS psychologist should they need to at this stage in the process. Only in the event of a failure to make reasonable progress, in spite of the school's best efforts in consultation with NEPS, will the psychologist become involved with an individual child for intensive intervention.

This process has been advised and communicated to schools in the following guidelines and resource materials:

Friends for Life Programme (NEPS)

The FRIENDS programmes are school-based anxiety prevention and resilience building programmes developed by Dr Paula Barrett from Australia. The World Health Organisation cites ‘FRIENDS for Life’ as one of the few evidence-based programme for anxiety in children that is effective at all levels of intervention (WHO, 2004).
FRIENDS programmes support teachers to teach children and young people how to develop effective strategies to cope with, problem-solve and manage worry, stress, change and anxiety. Skills learned throughout the programme help pupils cope with problems that can arise as part of school life and dilemmas they may experience in later life.
FRIENDS programmes can be run by teachers as a whole class programme, or as a small group or one to one intervention.

FRIENDS is an acronym for the skills taught throughout the programme:
• Feelings.
• Remember to Relax. Have quiet time.
• Inner helpful thoughts
• Explore Solutions and Coping Step Plans.
• Now reward yourself! You’ve done your best!
• Do it every day. Don’t forget to practice.
• Stay Strong and talk to your support networks!
More information on the programmes can be found via links below.
