Here you will find all curriculum documentation and supporting material for the Irish curriculum for children from the ages 1 – 6 (Aistear), pupils from the ages 5 – 12 (primary), students from the ages 12 -15 (junior cycle) and the ages 16 – 18 (senior cycle).
In March 2022, NCCA hosted a BEACONS event in collaboration with the Teaching Council.
This toolkit is being developed to support teachers working with Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) as an aspect of the current SPHE curriculum.
SPHE is a broad curriculum that helps children and young people learn about themselves and to develop and maintain healthy relationships.
The materials in this toolkit are designed to support you in independently progressing your professional development in SPHE.
The Practice Guide includes resources to help practitioners to critically reflect on their curriculum and to identify what works well.
Senior Cycle is being redeveloped following a comprehensive review process.
Aistear is the early childhood curriculum framework for all children from birth to 6 years in Ireland.
The Irish primary education system aims to provide a holistic education to enable children to live their lives to the full and to realise their potential as unique individuals.
The Framework for Junior Cycle provides the basis for post-primary schools to plan quality, inclusive and relevant education programmes with improved learning experiences for all students, including those with special educational needs.
Senior cycle education is the period of education that follows the junior cycle and is generally taken by students between the ages of 15 and 18.
