Association of Teachers' Education Centres in Ireland

The ATECI is the umbrella organisation of the 21 full-time and 9 part-time Education Centres in Ireland. It represents the interest of the network as a whole including both part-time and full-time Directors, staff and management committees of all centres.

The executive of the Association meets six times a year but we have organised the network into a series of six regional groups. The regional groupings meet separately and work very closely together initiating collaborative projects which are often piloted and then shared with the network in general.

Next ATECI

The association has a remit:

  • (a) to act for and on behalf of member centres on all matters of policy as agreed by centres at AGM or EGM
  • (b) to raise the profile of Centres
  • (c) to be a partner at national level in the formulation of education policy
  • (d) to provide advice and support to Committees of Management and Directors of Centres.ateci_photo_2012_edited


The principal activity of Education Centres (originally Teachers’ Centres) is to organize the local delivery of national programmes of teacher professional development on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills. Centres also organize a varied local programme of activities for teachers, school management and parents in response to demand. Education Centres are statutory bodies and are managed by voluntary Management Committees elected annually.
