Tyndall College in Carlow town is an ETBI school



Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI) will launch its patrons’ framework on Ethos for Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board (KCETB) schools at an event tomorrow, Wednesday 23 November.

ETB schools are state, co-educational, multi-denominational schools underpinned by the core values of excellence in education, care, equality, community and respect. The ETBI Patrons’ Framework on Ethos, which was developed by ETBI and the Centre for Evaluation, Quality and Inspection at Dublin City University (DCU), will support all ETB schools in Kilkenny and Carlow living out their ethos. The Framework applies to the 27 Community National Schools and 252 Community Colleges under the patronage of ETBs.

In Co Carlow, KCETB is the patron of Coláiste Eoin, Hacketstown; Borris Vocational School; Coláiste Aindriú, Bagenalstown;

Tyndall College, Carlow and Gaelcholaiste Cheatharlach, Carlow.

KCETB Chief Executive Eileen Curtis said, “We welcome the launch of the ETBI Patrons’ Framework which will further enhance the work of our schools here in Kilkenny and Carlow and our colleague schools across the wider ETB network and ensure that we achieve the highest standards of education for all our learners in an inclusive environment.”


Conor Walsh has been appointed as ethos co-ordinator in Kilkenny and Carlow, and he will be supporting all the schools in the implementation and further development of the framework.

He said: “This framework is the culmination of ten years of extensive national consultation, research and visionary policymaking. It articulates for the first time what it means to be an ETB school. It is a historic day for the ETB school community.”
