Aine is involved with the budgeting, planning and roll out of the CKLP organisational response to educational disadvantage in primary and post primary settings. Her work is mostly with the schools in Co. Kildare which have DEIS status, to support them in addressing gaps and needs among their students to stay within the education system. However some supports are also available to non DEIS Schools such as volunteer led reading programme Better Basics, The Inclusion and Diversity Yellow Flag programme and the roll out of the pilot delivery of Jump A Grade, academic support to targeted students.
Áine also works with other organisations and agencies on projects that respond to needs or issues identified by schools or parents in Kildare.
