JCT are delighted to announce a new two-year initiative, entitled Junior Cycle Coding in Action. It will build on the success and learning from out pilot CPD initiative, Exploring Coding, which ran from Jan 2016 – Feb 2017
This new initiative is designed to support schools who are committed to introducing the short course in Coding within their Junior Cycle programme. We are delighted to have both Intel Ireland and Lero – The Irish Software Research Centre – continuing to collaborate with us on this innovative initiative. Detail of the initiative is contained within the below letter to school as well as the Junior Cycle Coding in Action brochure.
There is a limit to the number of schools that can engage in this initiative. In order to participate, a school must complete the online Expression of Interest form below. The closing date for expressions of interest has been extended to 4.00pm on Friday 5th May 2017.
