Newly Appointed Principals

Go Back

The Centre for School Leadership provides a formal mentoring support for all newly appointed primary and post-primary principals. (To apply for a Mentor please click on Mentoring infomation evenings below.) 

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.

Last year, we matched 320 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. 

Mentoring Information Evenings 2019 (Please click here for more information)

These evening sessions are aimed specifically at those people who were unable to be in attendance at the Misneach One Programme in August 2019. New principals who attend these meetings will be able to access a CSL mentor once they have completed this module. The sessions will last  1.5 hours and will mostly be held in Education Centres with some exceptions where availability is limited.

To apply for one of these sessions, please email office@cslireland.ie. Alternatively, you can register for the Misneach Programme and we will make contact with you.
