Droichead – Teacher Induction Programme

Droichead (the Irish word for bridge) is the model of induction currently piloted in a range of schools here in Ireland. Droichead was developed following a consultation process with teachers and other stakeholders. It is designed to reflect the importance of induction for new teachers as they are formally welcomed into the most important profession in society. It is grounded in the belief that those best placed to conduct this formal welcome are experienced colleagues who have relevant and in-depth knowledge of teaching and learning in their respective schools.  These fellow professionals are themselves supported through the provision of a range of structures and resources from the National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT).

RCS is a member of the Droichead Programme supporting those newly qualified members of staff through professional collaboration.
