I would like to draw your attention to our long-standing relationship in Monaghan EC with Ulster University through our M Ed. In Leadership in Education with Specialisms.

We intend to run this programme again in the 2021/22 school year with an additional offering of the PGDip in School Leadership. Traditionally, the first year of this part-time programme has been taught in the centre in face-to-face classes. However there is on-line/blended learning provision for the start of this new school year should it be required in line with public health requirements.

I would be most grateful if you could bring this opportunity to the attention of your staff. I am available to answer any questions they might have in relation to it.
