Upskilling opportunities for registered post-primary teachers to teach Mathematics, Physics and Spanish

The Minister for Education Norma Foley TD and the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD have announced the launch of a new initiative that will see three new education programmes to upskill registered post-primary teachers to teach mathematics, physics and Spanish.

I am including below links to the joint press release of the Ministers and that of the HEA:

Three level 8 programmes have been selected for funding, as follows:
