Framework for Junior Cycle 2015
The Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan TD, today announced the publication of Framework for Junior Cycle 2015.
The document sets out a clear vision and detailed outline of how teaching, learning and assessment in the Junior Cycle will be reformed to ensure a learning experience for young people that is highly engaging for them and appropriate to the needs of the 21st century.
Students will be at the centre of the learning process and will engage with a modernised curriculum across all subjects. They will experience new ways of learning and a broader range of skills, while innovative classroom-based assessment will support that learning.
Through the new Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement parents and students will receive a much more rounded, balanced and enriched picture of the students’ progress and achievements across all areas of learning in the Junior Cycle.
