School with biggest Leaving Cert class in the country plans to create virtual day school
The future of education?
Like many other businesses, the Institute of Education on Leeson Street has had to totally overhaul the way they operate since the COVID-19 restrictions were introduced.
The school, which has been operating its classes virtually since, is now looking at the possibility of creating a virtual day school, the first of its kind in Ireland.
Directors and owners of the Institute of Education, Peter and Úna Kearns, were speaking to host Sonya Lennon on The Architects of Business, made in partnership with EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™, about how their school has been adapting to the new reality presented by the Covid-19 emergency.
