At a meeting of first and second-level teachers on 1st March 1994 Co. Wexford Teachers’ Centre was reconstituted and located in Enniscorthy. The Department of Education & Science awarded it Study Group status.
A major breakthrough came in September 1997 when Co. Wexford Teachers’ Centre was awarded fulltime status. It was renamed Co. Wexford Education Centre and the first full time Director, Mr. Pat Higgins, was appointed. The Centre moved into rented accommodation at 22 Rafter St., Enniscorthy.
In 1998 a site of .6 hectares was purchased at Milehouse Road, Enniscorthy and plans were drawn up for a purpose-built Education Centre. The Management Committee took possession of the new building in August 2000. It was an exciting and eventful journey.
