Welcome from Prof. Michael Grenfell: Chair and Head of School
The School is one of the largest of the departments within Trinity with approximately 505 postgraduate students and is committed to engaging in teaching and research at all levels of its provision: initial teacher education; postgraduate education and research; and continuing professional development.
You are very welcome to our website.
The School is actively involved in all areas relevant to contemporary education: for example, Teaching and Learning; Language and Literacy; Science and Mathematics; Curriculum and Assessment; Policy Evaluation; History, Sociology, Philosophy; Special Needs and Inclusion; Higher Education; Educational Psychology; ICT; Guidance and Counselling; Lifelong Learning; Leadership and Management; Arts and Aesthetics Education; Vocational and Professional Education.
You will find details here of our many activities, including teacher education and research opportunities. Many of these are delivered through one of our research groupings: CAVE (Cultures, Academic Values and Education), IES (Inclusion in Education and Society), and Curriculum and Pedagogy. Further information on the staff members of these groupings, their expertise, specialism and publications are also included here.
There are a number of degree options, as well as information on our research and programme of events, seminars and conferences.
We invite you to explore the site in order to find the right course and event for you. Here in Trinity, we are lucky to be located at the very centre of Dublin, which itself holds a central global position. Dublin is one of the world’s most appealing cities, with a multiplicity of leisure and cultural opportunities. The Library is of international repute and we maintain close contact with both local school and colleges, and educational institutions across the world.
We look forward to meeting and working with you.

Chair and Head of Education
