About Us


PDST Technology in Education promotes and supports the integration of ICT in teaching and learning in first and second level schools. It is part of the national support service, the Professional Development Service for Teachers, which operates under the aegis of the Department of Education and Skills. The functions of the PDST Technology in Education were previously the responsibility of the National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE). The NCTE was integrated into the PDST in June 2012. The PDST is managed by the Dublin West Education Centre (DWEC).


The main functions of PDST Technology in Education fall into two categories:

  1. Providing a range of ICT-related support services to schools
  2. Policy development, strategic and administrative functions

The offices are based in Dublin City University campus in Glasnevin.
