The Department of Education is pleased to announce the opening of a new round of Creative Clusters.  The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 14th May 2021.  Applications are to be submitted to skerr@dwec.ie.

 

Please see the following link for more details: Creative Clusters

Schools can apply as part of a cluster which may be an existing network of schools.

A school nearing the end of year 2 of an existing Creative Cluster can reapply to be in a new cluster where the other schools in the new cluster have not participated before.

Schools nearing the end of 2 years with Creative Schools are eligible to apply.

The local Teacher Education Support Centre will have a key role in identifying and supporting a Creative Cluster for their local area.

A total of 21 Creative Clusters will be selected nationally – One successful Creative Cluster per Education Centre.  Applications should be emailed to: skerr@dwec.ie.

Any queries, please contact your local Education Centre or email Arts in Education Administration mairevieux@edcentretralee.ie

Creative Clusters is an initiative of the Department of Education, led by and in partnership with the 21 full-time Teacher Education Centres (Education Support Centres Ireland – ESCI) and funded through the Schools Excellence Fund.
