Board and Development Groups

Boards and Development Groups

In the NCCA’s existing structure, oversight of the curriculum and assessment work in early childhood and primary, junior cycle and senior cycle is carried out by Boards. This oversight is important in ensuring that strands of development contribute to a coherent and manageable whole for schools and early childhood settings. Boards have responsibility to ensure that curriculum and assessment development is carried out in accordance with the terms of the agreed briefs, to review each strand of work within the sector in the context of each of the other strands. Boards have the opportunity to discuss significant issues as they emerge within each sector and make connections with developments in other sectors. To provide a strong, representative and responsive basis for its curriculum and development work the NCCA has established Development Groups to undertake specific tasks in curriculum areas or subjects. The Boards and Development Groups currently working are listed below.
