​​The Institute of Education was founded in 1969 by Mr. Raymond Kearns who was then Senior Mathematics Master at Gonzaga College.

Set up initially to provide private grinds in Maths to both teachers and Leaving Certificate students, the classes were so successful that a site was soon hired on Leeson Street in Dublin, and the classes extended to cover a range of Leaving Certificate subjects.
