The Network aims to:

  • Support Travellers to influence change where possible
  • Improve communication between Traveller families and education providers
  • Promote understanding of Traveller Culture and Traveller living history
  • Provide opportunities for network members to hear about the challenges facing education providers and Traveller families who are supporting young Travellers to finish their Junior and Leaving Certificates

There are currently three main strands to the network's work:

  • continue to ensure the successful transfer from primary to second level
  • keeping students in education after the age of 16
  • promoting further education - college, trades or entrepreneurship
