Webinar: Why our Teachers Need to Know Their Law

Event Date: 25 February 2021

We hosted a webinar in collaboration with The Education Support Centres Ireland (ESCI) on Why Our Teachers Need to Know Their Law.

You don’t have to be a lawyer to be a teacher but knowledge of the law is essential if you are to survive in an increasingly compliance-driven school context.

At this webinar, our expert speakers discussed your legal obligations including:

  • Your duty as an employee
  • Your duty of care to students
  • Child Protection
  • Teaching council code of conduct
  • Case studies will be referenced which will help demystify an otherwise complex area
