Irish Aid's World Wise Global Schools programme can offer you resources, ideas and information to help students at junior cycle, transition year and senior cycle understand the links between their lives and those of people in developing countries. We can help you to bring global development and human rights issues into your teaching in a variety of subjects including English, Geography, CSPE and Religion, and for cross-curricular work.

School workshops

Bring the world to your classroom by taking part in school workshops in the Irish Aid Centre, 3 Clonmel Street, off Harcourt Street, Dublin 2.
