Leadership – PDST


The Misneach Programme of Induction for newly appointed principal teachers delivered through the PDST has provided professional development and support for principals over the past 10 years.

The programme assists principals in “walking the tightrope” of the induction to principalship and affords them the opportunity to develop as a school leader in their own school.

The Misneach Programme is offered via a blend of residential modules, local support settings, mentoring and online support. It is funded by the Department of Education and Skills.  Misneach is designed and delivered by a team of experienced school leaders
