About Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board

DDLETB are the largest of the 16 ETB’s (Education and Training Boards) throughout Ireland and we support 4,500 employees and 75,000 learners in their career and education journey.

Our schools and centres are state, co-educational, multi-denominational, inclusive, learner-centred and community-focused and are underpinned by our five ETB core values of Professionalism, Excellence, Equality, Respect, and Support.

We provide education through the medium of Irish/Gaeilge and English and we pride ourselves on our commitment to Innovation in Education, Special educational needs, Information Technology in Education, promoting the Arts and allowing every learner to achieve their full potential.

DDLETB staff, schools & centres benefit greatly from a broad range of supports and services within the organisation. DDLETB provide support in, Corporate, Governance, Educational, Administrative, Financial, Human Resources, Buildings, Information Technology (Digital) and Psychological Support Services, and supports and also facilitates training and professional development programmes through our Development Support Teams.

Our employees are supported and encouraged to participate in professional and personal development opportunities and we strive to create an environment of continuous learning in our team. We are a strong educational network where teachers, staff and learners support each other and collaborate to improve teaching and learning for all.

Join our dynamic team of educators and support staff today.


Be part of a Community.

Work with us to shape the future of education, building a community that thrives on mutual support and a shared passion for creating meaningful impact.

DDLETB is a team, a community of schools and centres who work together in a collective effort to support one another. We believe in the power of collaboration, fostering an environment where educators work together to enhance teaching and learning for all.

We have 10 Community National Schools, 31 Community Colleges/Post Primary schools and 5 Further Education Colleges as well as our Youthreach and Adult Education Centres. The hours worked in any of these schools or centres count towards permanency if a teacher moves/transfers to another school/centre in our ETB. This is in stark contrast to the situation in other types of school where each new appointment starts with zero credit for a contract completed in another school. We also have a strong team of Educational Support staff who work though-out our schools and centres and in our Head Office.

Enhanced Career Path and Professional Support & Development

Join DDLETB not just for a job but for a journey of personal and professional development and an enriched career path.

We embrace innovation and progressiveness and are committed to offering a platform for growth that extends beyond the classroom.

As an organisation promoting learning, we have a very active programme of continuous professional development and many networks and communities of practice (further details above). In addition to programmes, training and support offered centrally in DDLETB, each school/college promotes its own programme of personal and professional development. Encouraging professional collaboration with subject colleagues and cross-curricular projects, supporting newly qualified teachers through the Droichead programme and taking a strong stance on Wellbeing for both students and staff.


Leadership Connect DDLETB


The aim of the Leadership Connect is to promote professional development in the area of educational leadership within our organisation. We aim to identify, grow and support our leaders and aspiring leaders, while also supporting their social, emotional and mental health needs. The Leadership Connect consists of 2 programmes, TLP and MLP.

Both programmes are certified and require 80% attendance in order to successfully complete the programme.

Teacher Leadership DDLETB


The Teacher Leadership Programme is a practical project-based leadership programme for non-positional teachers. TLP is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to explore educational leadership and gain practical experience in leading a school development project. The team-based approach of TLP offers support and flexibility.

Participating in the Teacher Leadership Programme requires teachers to commit to approximately 4 hours per month.

2hr session once a month (a mix of online and in-person sessions.) 2 x 30 minute Team meetings a month. 1 hr project work per team member. 2 x optional Leadership Connect sessions.

Middle Leadership DDLETB


The MLP is designed to enhance and develop the skills of middle leaders/ post-holders in our schools and centres. The programme consists of:

8 sessions (1 per month – some of which will be held online, while others will take place in DDLETB Head Office). 2 optional Leadership Connect sessions.

2022-2023 is the second year of this redeveloped programme. Sessions focus on developing and enhancing leadership capacity, professional and personal development, wellbeing, conflict management and leading and working in teams. As well as providing practical advice around communications, organisation and planning. Participants will be provided with ongoing support and will have access to a network of middle leaders and resources.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Universal Design for Learning seeks to provide all students regardless of ability, with opportunities to learn to the best of their abilities. The framework offers teachers a guide for creating flexible goals, methods, materials and assessments that work for everyone.

UDL Framework as Inclusive Practice The 3 Principles of UDL include:

  • Giving learners different ways to acquire information
  • Giving learners different ways to demonstrate what they’ve learned.
  • Tapping into learners’ different interests, challenging them appropriately, and motivating them to learn.

The UDL Badge is a 10-week online course (25 hours in total) that offers teachers an introduction to the principles and the opportunity to use the framework to start developing UDL practice in their classes.

This is a certified programme.
