Short Courses

Short courses are an important part of the new junior cycle and are linked directly to the statements of learning. Up to four short courses can be included in a schools junior cycle programme. Ten short courses have been developed by the NCCA and can be used off the shelf by schools. However, schools can also develop their own short course locally to a template, guidelines and standards set down by the NCCA.
