The publication of the Education and Training Boards Bill is welcomed by IVEA as a crucial statutory framework that will provide for the establishment of 16 Education and Training Boards (ETBs) to replace the present 33 Vocational Education Committees (VECs).
General Secretary, Michael Moriarty states:

The announcement today by Minister Ruairí Quinn of a major overhaul of the Junior Cycle education has been broadly welcomed by IVEA as a vital step towards ensuring that our young people have the opportunity to acquire the skills and competences essential to making the most of their lives - in the family, in the community and in the workplace.
