The incoming members of the Council were inducted at the Armagh City Hotel on 6th October 2010.    

The Registrar, Eddie McArdle warmly welcomed the new Council members and reflected on the dynamics impacting upon the profession at a global and from a local perspective.  The Registrar explored the nature of teaching and how it has evolved as a profession and how it is ultimately based on trust.

The consensus of opinion from the day appeared to be that despite the flux in the education systerm at present, it has tested and proven the determination of the profession while the policy makers continue to grapple with issues and problems that at times, appear to be intractable.

The Council will meet for its first session of business on 3rd November 2010.
