TRC welcomes publication of Independent Review of Education report

The Transferor Representatives’ Council has welcomed the publication today (Wednesday, 13th December) of the report of the Independent Review of Education in Northern Ireland.

The Council’s Chairman, Dr Andrew Brown, said: “The TRC welcomes the publication of this important report and will consider its recommendations over the coming weeks.

“Every child and young person living in Northern Ireland has a unique and incredible potential.  We again express our thanks to all principals, teaching and non–teaching staff, and school governors who give their time and commitment to help children to learn and thrive, and encourage their mental, physical and spiritual development.

“Our education system serves one of the youngest populations in Europe and ensuring that it is fully funded must be a high priority for all in government.  We look forward to continuing to work with colleagues across education to seek the best for our schools, families and communities.”

The Board of Education (Northern Ireland) represents the Church of Ireland in all educational matters affecting Northern Ireland and nominates representatives of the Church to any education body as required, including the Transferor Representatives’ Council, the Education Authority, and the Controlled Schools’ Support Council.
