Pastoral Issues

The personnel at Cúram.ie have a long history in providing schools across the country with resources and training to support the key pastoral roles of Class Tutor, Year Head and Care Teams. We also offer a confidential individual coaching - a personal and professional accompaniment programme to assist teachers and others deal with particular issues in their professional lives. In addition the pastoral approaches of any school are supported through the various tranining programmes and publications available. Our latest publication (2016): Year Heads Making a Difference is a 220 page handbook for this vital role in our schools. Currently its author, Luke Monahan, is leading a training programme for over 1000 year heads nationally. 

The most significant of these programmes include:

Class Tutor and Year Head Training - this half day seminar is the most popular of Curam's programmes - close to half of Irish schools have at some point been involved with this programme. It has been constantly updated with many schools taking the programme up again to support in a concrete way its Tutors and Year Heads.

The session covers:

Understanding the roles - specific issues for the school - effective ways to be Tutor and Year Head - ideas from other contexts that work - discipline issues - time concerns - building class/year spirit - motivation and academic role - reward and recognition approaches - dealing with difficulties - effective planning.

Year Head Team

A two to three hour session working with this core group to review their work and how they work -to explore their realistic vision of what they want to achieve and the practical means to get there. Our latest publication (2016): Year Heads Making a Difference is a 220 page handbook for this vital role in our schools. Currently its author, Luke Monahan, is leading a training programme for over 1000 year heads nationally.

More and more schools are availing of this programme - it supports this group around its identity and purpose - to examine how best to use the capacities of its members - to set realistic goals and to outline an effective means to achieve them.
