Consultation: Structure and Time in the Primary Curriculum

 

January to April 2017

z8

The primary curriculum has provided a strong foundation for teaching and learning since it was published in 1999. Since then, research, reviews and evaluations have highlighted many strengths of the curriculum as well as challenges. It was a curriculum of its time. These are changing and different times.

Think about five to seven years from now. How should our primary curriculum be structured? Should we still use subjects from junior infants to sixth class? Is there a better way to think about how we use time across the curriculum? These are some of the questions shaping proposals for a consultation on the primary curriculum. The consultation will take place from January to April 2017 with a major consultative conference on March 28th.

Have your say by:

-attending a focus group for teachers in one of the selected Education Centres (details to follow)

-completing our online questionnaire which will be available on this page shortly

-requesting a meeting with your organisation and the NCCA Project Team

-attending our Consultative Event in Dublin Castle on March 28th -registration opening soon

If you have a query about the consultation, please contact us at structureandtime@ncca.ie.

We look forward to hearing from you!
