Leaving Certificate Economics is changing
A new Leaving Certificate Economics specification is currently being developed by the NCCA. It is intended that this specification will replace the current Economics syllabus in due course. There are a number of steps involved in developing a new curriculum specification. Information on the progress of the Economics specification is available below. You can access the current Economics syllabus here.
Background Paper for Leaving Certificate Economics
The Background Paper for the revision of Leaving Certificate Economics was approved by NCCA Council in November 2014. The purpose of the background paper was to explore the development of the subject at senior cycle; to highlight good practice at home and abroad; and to use evidence-based research to inform the revision of the specification. A consultation on this background paper was carried out in March 2015. The report from this consultation is available below.
