The region has approximately 214 schools, both primary and post primary. Navan also gives professional ICT support to the schools and teachers of Co Cavan.

It is managed by a committee elected annually at the Centre's AGM. Day-to-day management and administration are the responsibility of Director Bernadette McHugh and staff.
The Centre was established in 1972 in the Navan Vocational School and then moved to St Anne’s Loreto Convent in 1974. The present building was officially opened by the Minister for Education, Michael Woods TD on 25 May 2001.
