Link Learning Clusters

Supporting Principals and Link Teachers

Dear Principal/Literacy Link Teacher,

It is my pleasure to offer you and your literacy link teacher an opportunity to attend our forthcoming post-primary literacy clusters. Over the last two years these clusters have been an invaluable way for school leaders and teachers like you, to share expertise and to be supported in the promotion of literacy in schools.

It is hoped that the link learning clusters will develop as local communities of practice where link teachers and/or principals will regularly share their experiences and exchange ideas, therefore learning with and from each other. These clusters also aim to develop the leadership capacity of link teachers as they work within the context of a dynamic, progressive and collaborative group of professionals committed to improving students’ learning in literacy. Each cluster will be facilitated by a PDST literacy advisor.

The clusters are open to principals/link teachers who have been engaging in the SSE process for literacy and also to those commencing the process.  Your experiences of leading literacy learning will contribute hugely to this gathering, and feedback from the last two years has been extremely positive.

The list of venues and dates are detailed below.

Please note: You will need to register online to book a place. Please see attachment
