Mission Statement

    • To encourage fruitful links with and between the different levels of education.
      1. To act as a resource centre which would enable education stakeholders to prepare and construct equipment and materials for use in their own schools and in addition to facilitate the display of teachers’ and pupils’ work and materials for use in their own school and to provide for a display of textbooks, materials and equipment.
      2. To co-operate and engage with other Education Support Centres, full and part-time, so as to ensure that an effective network of Centres is established.
      3. To plan for the development of expertise in key areas and to share such expertise throughout the Education Support Centre Network and the education system in general.
