The Church of Ireland College of Education is one of the oldest teacher training colleges in Ireland. It maintains a long established and proud tradition of training primary teachers and will celebrate its bi-centenary in 2011. The College has grown substantially over the years, facilitated by its move to a new location in Rathmines in 1969.
In recent years the College has established postgraduate diploma courses of professional development in Learning Support and Special Educational Needs, in collaboration with the Department of Education & Science. It also trains special needs assistants.
Other initiatives include the Reading Centre, the Development & Intercultural Education project and CICE Publications.
