Galway Education Centre is one of a network of 21 Education Centres under the remit of the Department of Education & Skills in Ireland. The core work of the Centre is the provision of continuing professional development (CPD) for the education community in the Galway region. Each school year the centre organises a programme of courses, conferences, communities of practice and IT training to support newly identified researched needs. The centre also focuses on creating opportunities for young people in Engineering, IT, Robotics, Science, Entrepreneurship, Mathematics as well as The Arts. The model we have developed to achieve this involves genuine partnerships with industry and other education partners to create programmes that will benefit the next generation. This involves building teams to work on projects with companies such as SAP, Medtronic, EA Games, HP, Accenture, LEGO Education, Microsoft, Dell, Intel, SOS Ventures and SketchUp.
