The Office of the Houses of the Oireachtas have recently awarded a contract for the provision of a new online education programme.  This will take a number of months to complete (2015).  In the meantime, the material available in the 'in the classroom' section may still be used as a resources for students, teachers and the general public.

Our new online programme will support the Civic, Social and Political Education (CSPE) programme in secondary schools, giving our young citizens an insight into public affairs, democracy and our political system.
