Over the past two decades, society has been transformed. We have witnessed changes that many, if not most of us, would have had difficulty imagining possible not so long ago. Continuing to build a transformed and more shared society is a key priority for government. Integrated education, which provides exciting opportunities for children and young people from different community backgrounds to learn together, has an important role to play in that process.
The Department of Education (DE) produced ‘Integration Works’ guidance last year which has supported a number of schools to explore the process of Transformation to integrated status. NICIE, in partnership with the IEF, will be hosting an information event for principals, teaching staff, governors and parents who wish to find out more about the Transformation process.
This event will include interactive workshops exploring the topic of integrated education, offer advice and schools that have gone through the process will highlight their experiences. It will include input from principals, governors and parents, as well as providing an opportunity to answer questions you may have.
