DES Circular 0055/2019 states that 'The Framework for Junior Cycle 2015 recognises that teachers need professional time to engage in a range of professional collaborative activities, a proportion of which will involve collaboration with teaching colleagues, to support teaching, learning, assessment and reporting.'
Here, we provide some suggestions for things you might consider as part of the range of individual and collaborative professional activities you will engage in during this time.
The resources below have been designed to support teachers and English subject departments in planning their second/third year English programme.
