Teacher Summer Course Providers

(Updated for 2024)

There are lots of options for primary teachers when choosing a summer Continuous Professional Development course to attend. Many of the courses are available online so attendance is possible from anywhere in Ireland. Sometimes, you may have a specific topic or area in mind that you would like to learn about e.g., to improve your Irish Grammar, or to learn about the Science of Reading, so you may wish to look across all of the providers to see if there are any courses available on this topic.

Below is a list of the main teacher summer course providers in Ireland to assist with searching for your ideal course.

Drumcondra Education Centre publish an annual booklet listing all course providers and approved summer CPD courses in Ireland. It is usually available in June. Their booklet for 2024 is available here. 

There are also some independent providers/ individual teachers offering DES approved summer courses which can be booked through their own websites. They are often publicised on social media. I have included all that I am aware of here, but if you know of any other DES approved summer courses that I haven’t included in this post, please let me know in the comments!
