Bronnadh an Apple Distinguished Programme ar an Máistir Gairmiúil san Oideachas mí na
Feabhra 2015 agus ba é an chéad chlár tríú leibhéal lasmuigh de Mheiriceá a ghnóthaigh an
gradam seo.

Bronnadh an gradam den dara huair ar an Máistir Gairmiúil san Oideachas do na blianta
2016-2018 ar na mallaibh.

Leis an ngradam seo, tá an Máistir Gairmiúil san Oideachas aitheanta an athuair mar chlár le barr
feabhas san nuálaíocht, sa cheannródaíocht agus mar eiseamláir oideachais maidir le húsáid na
teicneolaíochta san oideachas.

Ghlac Ceann nua-cheaptha na Scoile, an tOllamh Gerry Mac Ruairc, in éineacht le stiúrthóir an
chláir, an Dr Brendan Mac Mahon leis an ngradam, thar ceann na foirne MGO, ó Éanna Ó
Brádaigh, Bainisteoir Forbairt Gnó san Oideachas, Apple.

Galway, was again recently awarded the prestigious Apple Distinguished Programme for
