About Us

Clare Education Centre, formerly known as Ennis Teachers' Centre, has, since 1972, supported the in-service needs of Clare teachers. Since August 2000, the Centre has been located in a new purpose-built complex on the Kilrush Road, Ennis.

The main functions of Clare Education Centre include a requirement to support the in-service needs of the state and to identify and support locally identified needs.  To this end Clare Education Centre has a strong tradition in the development and provision of local courses and school based initiatives.  

The Centre is part of a group of 21 Full Time Education Centres and nine Centres operating on a Part-time basis supported principally by the Department of Education and Science. In addition to the functions noted above Clare Education Centre has, in recent years, been involved in Intercultural Projects with Centres in European Union countries.

Clare Education Centre is the administrative centre for the following programmes:

Centre for School Leadership (CSL)
Centre for School Leadership (CSL) has responsibility across the continuum of leadership development commencing with pre appointment training through to induction of newly appointed principals to continuous professional development throughout the leader’s career.

PDST Leadership Programme
PDST Leadership Programme facilitates training programmes for Principals and Deputy Principals including Misneach, Forbairt and Tánaiste. 

Maths Recovery and Mata sa Rang
Maths Recovery (MR) is a numeracy programme available to DEIS Urban Band 1 & 2 schools.  Maths Recovery offers a unique approach to extending children’s number knowledge, understanding and strategies.  Mata sa Rang (MsR) is a classroom approach to MR which was developed by Dr. Noreen O’Loughlin, MR Ireland and is available to both rural DEIS and non-DEIS schools. It is delivered nationwide by MR teachers through the Education Centre Network.

Leaving Cert Applied, PDST, Politics and Society, History, Geography, Religion and Classics 
Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained Leaving Certificate programme. It is designed for those students who do not wish to proceed directly to third level education or for those whose needs, aspirations and aptitudes are not adequately catered for by the other two Leaving Certificate programmes.  Politics and Society is a new Leaving Certificate subject which was examined for the first time in 2018 in forty-one phase one schools nationwide.
