Junior Cycle Implementation Support (JCIS)

Whole School CPD Workshops 2015-2020


The JCT Whole-school Team evolved into the Junior Cycle Implementation Support Team commencing formally in September 2021.

Between 2015 and June 2021, the Whole-school Team facilitated many workshops nationally, closing schools for teachers and school management, to attend their “Whole-school Day”.

Below you will find the workshops associated with those “Days”. In terms of their content, there remains strong support for all aspects of Teaching, Learning, Assessment and Reporting.

All workshops reflect the Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) as implemented by the Junior Cycle Circular Letter current at that time.

In terms of the implementation of Junior Cycle, for the 2021/2022 school-year, the Framework must be read alongside the current Junior Cycle Circular 59/2021.

Any references to the NCCA Junior Cycle Wellbeing Guidelines, should now be read in the light of their revised guidelines - Junior Cycle Wellbeing Guidelines 2021.

All references to the Wellbeing Policy Statement and Framework for Practice, should now be read in the light of the revised edition - Wellbeing Policy Statement and Framework for Practice
Any references to Junior Cycle Subject Specifications and Assessment Guidelines should be referenced from the Junior Cycle section of the NCCA’s curriculumonline website, which houses the most up to date version of these.
