Institute of Education Teachers
The Institute of Education was founded in 1969 by Mr. Raymond Kearns who was then Senior Mathematics Master at Gonzaga College. Set up initially to provide private grinds in Maths to both teachers and Leaving Certificate students, the classes were so successful that a site was soon hired on Leeson Street in Dublin, and the classes extended to cover a range of Leaving Certificate subjects.
Today, The Institute of Education occupies seven large Georgian buildings on its Dublin’s City Centre’s Leeson Street campus and is one of the largest private second level schools and grinds school in Ireland, sending more students to third-level colleges than any other school in Ireland.
The Institute of Education continues to foster educational innovation in many ways, providing students with exceptionally wide subject choice, flexible timetables, advanced IT facilities and progressive learning solutions. All geared towards providing a learning atmosphere that will equip 21st Century students with the skills they need to achieve their maximum potential.
From day one we have built our reputation on the quality of our teachers. We recruit the very best teaching talent in the country- teachers who are experienced, focused and professional and who consistently achieve excellent results for their students.
Our teachers are enthusiastic about teaching. They have a wealth of experience in preparing students for the Leaving Certificate exams and are dedicated to helping their students achieve their full potential.
Many of our teachers are authors of standard school textbooks and are regular contributors to educational publications and radio programmes.
