Teachmeet at the IPPN Deputy Principals’ Conference 2017


We are delighted to announce that our next Teachmeet event will be held at this year’s IPPN Deputy Principals’ Conference at Citywest, Dublin on Thursday 23rd March.

This event – a ‘DPmeet’, open only to deputy principals attending the conference – follows the conference theme ‘The Power of One’, and participants are invited to share inspirational strategies they use to lead teaching and learning in their own school.

What is a DPmeet?
A DPmeet is based on the philosophy of a Teachmeet – an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano (2-minute) or macro (7-minute) presentations on any aspect of education – in this case, leadership in primary education.

Participants can be actively involved as presenters, or can simply relax and listen to all that will be on offer. Attending this meet will also illustrate how you yourself can host a Teachmeet in your own school or your own locality.

  • UPDATE: Applications for presenters have now closed, and our programme has been published – click here to see who’ll be speaking on the day!

Please note that attendance is limited to Deputy Principals attending the IPPN Deputy Principals’ Conference.
