We are a voluntary organisation run by Secondary School Spanish teachers for Spanish teachers in Ireland. The main purpose of this website is to inform our members of upcoming ATS Ireland events. For teacher’s we have the Annual AGM & Conference and Continuing Professional Development Workshops. We also host an annual Debate and Quiz for students. Become a member and you too can participate in the events we run throughout the year*. 

The Association of Teachers of Spanish in Ireland exists to support and promote the teaching of Spanish in Secondary Schools in Ireland. The Committee of the Association meets at least five times a year. Committee work is done on a voluntary basis. The Association organises events throughout the year for secondary school teachers and students of Spanish in Ireland. Please check out our News tab or click on a blog post (right) to read our most recent posts.
