THREE-YEAR PART-TIME PROGAMME IN SCHOOL MANAGEMENT
CLEO, a ministry in post-graduate education under the aegis of the Presentation Brothers, is a collaborative partner of the University of Hull, UK, and provides a three-year, part-time programme leading to the award by the University of Hull of the Advanced Certificate in Applied Educational Studies (after one year), the Advanced Diploma (after two years), and the Masters in Education (after three years). Students may then proceed to one or other of the doctoral programmes of the University, the PhD or the EdD.
The MEd is an Honours programme and is recognised for all relevant purposes by the Department of Education and Science.
All lectures are held in Cork, generally at 4.30-6.30pm on Wednesdays in school term.

Since 1997, almost 200 teachers in the Munster region have taken the CLEO/Hull MEd, a high proportion attaining First Class Honours, a number winning University prizes for their dissertations. Ten have gone on to complete the EdD, ten, the PhD.
One of the explicit objectives of the Programme is the preparation of students for positions of leadership in primary and post-primary schools, Catholic schools in particular, and over forty CLEO graduates have been appointed principal subsequent to their completion of the Programme.
Classes are small and academic supervision, advice and support are readily available.
A new three-year Programme began in September 2010 and requests for application forms and/or further information should be addressed to:
