TEACHERS have responded in droves to our invitation to attend one of two NIE teacher placement days on April 20 and 22, focusing on Internet awareness.

More than 50 teachers applied for the total of 30 places available on the days, prompting us to set up an extra day on April 28 so that no one should be disappointed.

Schools should have received replies to their applications this week, giving the date on which their teacher could attend.

We are linking up on these events with the Teacher Placement Service, who are offering funding towards the cost of supply cover for schools, to enable teachers to leave their classes for the day.
