They also aim to address complex challenges related to developing an inclusive educational environment and preparing all school students for higher academic aspiration and progression, through a focus on whole school culture, leadership and change. It is intended that participant teachers will learn how to develop and lead a 'cultural change process' within the classroom and the wider school community. This course is aimed at secondary school teachers.

Deirdre Brennan, Moyle Park College (PG Cert 2016-17)

“Participating in the Postgraduate Certificate has helped our school introduce and embrace 21st century skills in our classrooms. We have developed a team of teachers and students that are engaged in project-based learning in the Arts, Sciences and Technology using the Bridge21 model of teaching and learning. Personally, I am enjoying a more facilitatory, creative role in my classroom, and my students have become more active learners”.
