Public Consultation on Common Funding Scheme: Have your say on how schools are funded

In addition to the arrangements which were in place to facilitate consultation with schools as part of the consultation process, the Minister was keen to hear the views of wider interested parties, including those in the community, voluntary and business sectors.

To facilitate this, the Department held 2 public information events on the proposed changes:

Omagh Library, Wednesday 9 October 2013 at 6.30pm.

Linen Hall Library, Belfast, Monday 14 October 2013 at 6.15pm.
