We in the ISSU are delighted to have been asked by Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairi Quinn TD, to be one of the nominating bodies for  each Education and Training Board (ETB).

We cannominate one male and one female who live in each ETB area, and the ETBs will meet before the end of July to decide which of the people nominated will be appointed to the Boards.

Postions on ETB boards are volutary but travel expenses are covered.  Meetings will generally be about every 2 months, and successful nominees will sit on the boards for 5 years.


To be considered for nomination, you must meet these criteria:

  • Be living in the area of the relevant ETB;

  • Be over the age of 18 on July 23rd;

  • Be a current or relatively recent second-level student

  • Ideally, you will have had some involvement in student councils or similar initiatives

What do I need to do?

Email your name, address and a brief background note to info@issu.ie before 5pm on Tuesday the 15th of July.
