Network of Secondary and Third Level German Education in Ireland

The consequences of Brexit leave Ireland uniquely exposed to a wide range of political and economic challenges. Irish business has to diversify and seek new markets and is looking increasingly to European countries.

The Department of Education and Skills is also committed to meeting these challenges by ensuring that Irish students are prepared for a future in Europe where foreign language skills will play an increasingly important role. Starting in 2017, the Goethe-Institute began by encouraging collaboration between secondary and third level institutions in order to promote and support new developments in this area. This was welcomed by German lecturers and teachers, as well as the DES.
 
The Institute would now like to continue to support cooperation between institutions by encouraging more regional networking and other activities or projects which promote German in secondary and HE.
 
If you would like to join with the Goethe-Institute in the development of regional networks, projects or activities such as workshops, competitions or professional development events which could be organized from Autumn 2019, we would be delighted to assist you.
 
We invite you to contact us to discuss any ideas, plans or other suggestions you may have.
