Each academic year, a Member State assumes the Presidency of the European Schools (ES). Ireland officially became part of the Troika alongside Croatia and Italy from 1 August 2021 and has assumed the Presidency of the European Schools from Croatia in 2022-23.
For its Presidency, Ireland has identified four key priority areas to support the European Schools’ system:
Full details on these priorities are in the below document, here
- Cultivating individual and collective reflective practice among teachers in the ES system with the support of four Higher Education Institutions
- Nurturing and celebrating active citizenship among young people in the secondary cycle in the ES system through the Citizenship Actions for All Programme (CAAP)
- Progressing the meaningful integration of the Accredited European Schools into the ES system to maximise synergies between traditional European Schools and Accredited European Schools
- Furthering work already being undertaken to simplify the administrative systems and procedures of the ES system.
This work will be progressed under the direction of the Board of Governors of the European Schools. The work will be overseen by the Board of Inspectors and other administrative structures within the ES system with the support of the Office of the Secretary General, Brussels and Ireland’s Presidency team.Minister Foley welcomes Ireland’s Presidency of the European Schools’ system
