The Centre for School Leadership provides a formal mentoring support for all newly appointed primary and post-primary principals.
There are currently 500 trained mentors in the system. These are all experienced principals who have completed a five day programme in mentoring and attend on-going CSL Professional Learning Days.
This year so far, we have matched 288 newly appointed principals with a mentor.
The CSL mentoring support is provided through the Misneach One Programme (See details below) or through CSL Mentoring Information Sessions provided regionally for those who miss their first Misneach event in August.
In the second year of their principalship, group mentoring is available for school leaders. It is facilitated by IPPN at primary level and by NAPD at post-primary level.
To apply for one of these sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can register for the Misneach Programme and we will make contact with you.

It is important that CSL can identify newly appointed principals and assign mentors as early as possible in advance of the new school year. With that in mind, if your school has a newly appointed principal or acting principal for the coming school year it would be appreciated if you could submit the form below. This information will facilitate direct communication from CSL and PDST with the new appointee.
