The Irish Primary Principal's Network (IPPN) is a professional body which provides support and services to school Principals in their role as school leaders and engages with the Department on issues relevant to this area. As a body, it provides Continuous Professional Development (CPD) to Principals and this programme is supported by the Department. The Department also facilitates the secondment of a teacher from a school to act as director of the IPPN.

The funding provided by my Department in this regard was approximately €179,000 in 2013.
