Welcome to NABMSE

Welcome to the website of the National Association of Boards of Management in Special Education (NABMSE) – the management voice of Special Education in Ireland.

NABMSE is a representative and networking association which seeks to support Boards of Management of schools providing education for children with special needs in Ireland and is a recognised partner in the education process.
