For the first time in 14 years the French Teachers’ Association of Ireland (FTA) is returning to Cork for its National Conference which this year will be on the theme of using media in the classroom.
The 2 day conference in UCC on October 6th/7th will be opened by the Swiss Ambassador to Ireland, Mme. Marie-Claude Meylan, and will include speakers from national and international agencies promoting the use of media in the French classroom. Supported by the French Embassy in Ireland, the International Federation of French Teachers, the Alliance Française and many other bodies this Conference promises to be a very enjoyable and profitable experience for French teachers in Ireland.

In the interests of supporting continuing professional development for post-primary teachers of French, the Department of Education and Skills and the Cultural Service of the French Embassy offer this year again a number of scholarships to attend an in-service course during the summer.
The in-service courses offered have enabled teachers to up-skill themselves both linguistically and pedagogically in addition to affording them opportunities to engage with other Irish teachers of French.
There are 2 types of scholarships offered:
Scholarships for a 2 weeks in-service course in France (July or August)
Scholarship for a 5 days in-service course at The Alliance Française de Dublin (June 26th – 30th)
