The 2020 Programme for Government states, ‘We will establish a Citizens Assembly on the future of education ensuring that the voices of young people and those being educated are central’ (Government of Ireland, 2020). In this article, we describe how we might best prepare for the Assembly.
The worlds of education, training, and work have been transformed in recent times and continue to change constantly, with globalisation and digital technology at the centre. This article surveys the evolution in the nature of employment and careers, identifying the driving forces and anticipating what lies ahead for students and workers in Ireland.
This major article explores how Ireland’s education system has engaged with the European Union since accession to the EEC 50 years ago. The role of Europe at all levels of Irish education has changed significantly over the years, and the consequences of these changes are often overlooked.
