How to arrange a visit:

  •  From September to December 2013, your school may contact Kildare Education Centre (tel: 045-530200 / email: office@eckildare.ie) for contact details of Erasmus Ambassadors in your area.
  • The school can then arrange a mutually convenient time and date with the speaker.
  • As with other outside visits, the visit by an Erasmus Ambassador should support the work of the curriculum. It is a matter for each school authority to decide on the suitability of any proposed visitors and to determine the suitability of the support materials and resources to be used. At no time should the speaker be left in an unsupervised capacity with the student group and the school should ensure that all appropriate measures are in place to ensure the welfare and protection of its pupils.

This pilot project is organised by the Higher Education Authority (the National Agency for Erasmus), in conjunction with the Department of Education & Skills and the Association of Teacher/Education Centres in Ireland (ATECI).
