Cavan & Monaghan Education and Training Board LAEP

Cavan Monaghan Education Training Board (CMETB)


The rationale for the establishment and development of a Local Arts in Education Partnership (LAEP) in the CMETB region is to nurture and support new relationships that will develop a shared responsibility for the delivery of arts in education that embraces visual, performing and literary arts.

Goals and Objectives

As lead partner in the Local Arts in Education Partnership, Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) will, in partnership with Cavan County Council and Monaghan County Council:

  • Nurture partnership development with a shared responsibility for the delivery of arts in education practice
  • Develop Monaghan Education Campus as a hub / centre of excellence for Arts in Education within CMETB
  • Develop and deliver an annual programme that engages children and young people from early years, primary, junior, transition and senior cycle students
  • Cultivate new partnerships and joint ventures between professional artists, arts organisations, cultural institutes, local authority arts officers and other arts providers but within existing financial supports
  • Foster ARIS – Arts Rich Schools, by encouraging and recognising schools that place the arts at the centre of the school community
  • Develop continuing professional development (CPD) to achieve high quality arts in education experiences for all involved
  • Foster and support creativity and ownership
  • Ensure effective communication
  • Enhance learning and evaluation
  • Support learning, evaluation and monitoring as an integral part of the new LAEP and provide flexible boundaries for change where required
