Launch of the TBUC Summer Camps 2016/17

The Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister, in partnership with the Education Authority, are inviting applications from groups who want to deliver a Camp under the Summer Camps Programme 2016/17.

The Summer Camps Programme is one of the headline actions described in the Together: Building a United Community strategy. A pilot programme was held during 2015/16 and 101 Camps were delivered. The Summer Camps Programme is about building positive relations among young people across all parts of our community and must have good relations at the core of them.  The Camps, which are open to young people aged 11 to 19 years, must be held between 1 April 2016 and 28 February 2017. Camps are not limited to the traditional summer period and can take place throughout the year.

Welcome to the Education Authority

At midnight on 31 March 2015, the South Eastern Education and Library Board ceased to exist. The Education Authority (EA) became operational on 01 April 2015 and has taken over the duties and responsibilities of all five Education and Library Boards as a new, single organisation.

A large scale change programme is currently being implemented to manage the transition, over a number of years, from five organisations to one with responsibility for delivery of education services.

In the short term, there will be no change to the delivery of services. Five sub-regions which reflect the geographic areas covered by the ELBs will continue to exist so you will continue to access our services as before as the <insert> region of the new Education Authority.

Visit the Education Authority website at www.eani.org.uk for further information.
From 01 October 2015, the Education Authority (EA) will no longer routinely advertise job vacancies in local, regional or national newspapers. Read more..
