ASSEMBLY EDUCATION COMMITTEE HOSTS EVENT TO
SCRUTINISE EARLY YEARS PROPOSALS
The Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Education will host a major event in Parliament Buildings to give key stakeholders the chance to voice their issues/concerns directly to Department of Education officials on the Department’s Draft Early Years (0-6) Strategy.
The event takes place at Parliament Buildings at 19.00 on Wednesday 17 November 2010.
When the Department of Education published the Draft Early Years Strategy, both the Committee and key stakeholders raised major concerns. This event will give stakeholders a platform to have their say and get clarity on the Draft Strategy directly from the Department.
Invited stakeholders include organisations, groups and parents with a direct interest in Early Years.
The event will include a presentation from Department of Education senior officials, panel discussions and an opportunity for guests to comment and ask questions.
There will be opportunities for interviews with Mervyn Storey MLA, Chairperson of the Committee. Interview requests should be made directly to the Communications Office.
