Future Leaders

20 TY students are taking part in the Future Leaders Programme for the duration of the year. The Future Leaders Transition Year Programme is a joint initiative from the GAA and the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It is a cross-curricular programme comprising of a series of modules designed to encourage maturity, initiative, responsibility, and leadership skills in pupils. The Programme gives pupils the knowledge and skills to support all roles required in the effective staging of Gaelic Games. As part of the Programme students are challenged to organise and run both on-field and off-field events for younger students. 

Our TY future leaders have been able to implement the theory into practice by working alongside the PE Department, coaching and assisting in Matches. Over the coming few weeks and months students will also be involved in a number of skill coaching sessions with students from local primary schools. They will also be involved in assisting and leading PE lessons to Junior classes in the school. This is a wonderful opportunity for these students to develop a host of skills.
