Governance / Management

The primary legislation governing Education and Training Boards is the Education and Training Boards Act, 2013.  The The Code of Practice for the Governance of Education and Training Boards sets out guidelines which should be primarily considered as a set of standards for members and staff of the Board.  Members and staff are expected to ensure that their activities in relation to the ETB are governed at all times by these standards, in letter and in spirit.
