The Heritage in Schools Scheme provides a panel of 175 heritage specialists to visit primary schools throughout the country. The specialist's areas of expertise range from bats to whales, from vikings to the history of bread, from story-telling to traditional dance, and from charcoal making to military heritage, to mention a few.

The scheme supports the stated aims and objectives of the SESE curriculum and provides an additional educational tool and resource for teachers. The visit is part-funded by the school and the Heritage Council.
