The Primary Professional Development Service (PPDS)

The Primary Professional Development Service (PPDS) operates under the Teacher Education Section of the Department of Education and Science, and its core work is to provide continuing professional development for primary school teachers. The PPDS was established in September 2008, when the former Primary Curriculum Support Programme (PCSP) and School Development Planning Support (SDPS) amalgamated, thus initiating the creation of a single cohesive support service for the primary sector.

In September 2009, the Substance Misuse Prevention Programme (SMPP) and the Child Abuse Prevention Programme (CAPP) were included under the broad remit of the PPDS
