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.

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

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.
