This March we are hosting a one-day Aspiring School Leaders Seminar.
This will be a ‘lecture and demonstration’ style seminar and no prior timetable or senior management experience is required.
It is designed to benefit teachers who are interested in applying for posts of responsibility such as Principal, Deputy Principal, Assistant Principal I and Assistant Principal II. If you have recently been appointed to a management role or if you are interested in becoming the school’s timetabler, this course will also be beneficial to you.
Throughout the day, you will be given a detailed overview of the timetabling process as well as the many ways in which management can use the VSware School Management system.
A personalised ‘Certificate of Attendance’ outlining the content covered will be given to each participant after the seminar and online help and notes will be made available to you. Tickets cost €123.00 including VAT and can be purchased online directly from our ticket vendor eventbrite.ie. An invoice will not be sent to your school.
