Development Education

The Development Education Programme is funded by Worldwise Global Schools, Concern and Trócaire.  Residencies are being held at present in twelve post primary schools throughout the country, with our team of dedicated writers, who are  working with students on global issues though the medium of creative writing. Master classes with writers for primary schools students will be held in May in Wicklow and Dublin in partnership with Concern. The Trócaire/Poetry Ireland Annual Poetry Competition on the theme “It’s UP TO US” is currently open for entries (closing date 7th April).
