Junior Cycle

Planning for the new Junior Cycle

The gradual introduction of the new Junior Cycle Student Award (JCSA), is a process that will not be completed until 2022

The new JC will see changes in every syllabus to incorporate certain key skills and statements of learning. Methods of assessment and certification will also change gradually. One of the greatest challenges will be moving from summative to formative based assessment.

Comprehensive information about these changes can be obtained on www.ncca.ie and www.juniorcycle.ie.

New syllabi will be introduced into First Year as follows

September 2014 English
September 2016 Science & Business Studies
