NPC offers training for new and established Parent Associations. The training consists of three different sessions.

Session 1. Information session: This session is useful for schools who wish to set up a Parent Association and explores the role and function of the Parent Association in the school. It is open to the whole school community and gives everyone a better understanding of what a Parent Association is and does within the school.

Session 2: Training for the Parent Association committee - This session creates a clear understanding of the various roles on the committee and is tailor made to suit the needs of the committee. The committee members begin to explore what Parental Involvement should entail, both in the home and in the school. This is in line with the National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy among children and young people 2011 - 2020, which outlines the role of parents in their children's education both in the home and in the school.

Session 3: This session is open to the whole school community. The session enables parents, teachers and members of the Board of Management to have a clear understanding of their role both in the school and in the home as outlined in the National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy.

Please note before completing Session 3 your Parent Association Committee must complete session 2.
