The work of the Clerical Officer/School Secretary is central to the effective working of the school. They engage with esinet/OLCS/P-POD which continue to evolve. The new General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) emanating from the EU legislative bodies will also have implications for schools. Following on from our Clerical Officer in-services last year, we will provide an in-service that is practically based and will give both new and experienced Clerical Officers an opportunity to discuss their concerns and to share best practice.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • Garda Vetting – National Vetting Bureau Act and DES Circular Letter 31/2016

  • School Governance Manual for Community & Comprehensive Schools

  • RCT & VAT

  • DES circular letters (16/17) relevant to school administration personnel

  • Paternity Leave

  • Web Book on teacher’s terms & conditions (leave)

  • ICT Infrastructure Grant

  • Procurement

  • PPOD update

  • Update on ACCS website
