At the recent December monthly meeting of Co. Donegal VEC the Committee adopted their new five year Education Plan. The plan covers the period 2011-2015 and was officially launched by Cllr. Martin Farren, Chairperson Co Donegal VEC.
“The four central themes contained within the plan ie, teaching and learning, a progressive and accountable organisation, using information technology and working in partnership, will ensure that Co Donegal VEC as an educational body will be well placed to respond to the difficult challenges that lie ahead,” Cllr. Farren said.
Ms Mary Ann Kane, CEO of Co. Donegal VEC said the new Education Plan will build on Co Donegal VECs proud tradition of providing an extensive range of high quality educational services to the people of Co Donegal. “It provides a clear focus for the organisation in the years ahead and we as a VEC we look forward to meeting the many challenges that it presents.”
Ms Kane paid tribute to the entire staff and said they will be central to ensuring our key priorities and associated outcomes are realised over the duration of the plan. “The plan will also enable our VEC to make a smooth transition into the new Co Donegal Education and Training Board with enhanced functions and responsibilities,” she added.
The new plan was put together following a significant consultation process which involved VEC staff members, students, parents, community groups, VEC committee members and various local organisations. The plan is bilingual with an emphasis on making the contents relevant to all key stakeholders. The public were also invited to make comment through the VEC website www.donegalvec.ie
