The junior cycle of post-primary education in Ireland is changing.
The new junior cycle will feature newly developed subjects and short courses, a focus on literacy, numeracy and key skills, and new approaches of assessment and reporting. The new model promotes new methods of teaching, learning and assessment at junior level in post-primary schools. The focus is shifted from what students are taught to how and what they learn. The course encourages independent thinking, learning and real engagement with education and helps students become more flexible and capable of adapting to ever-changing learning environments.
