Supporting Change

Supporting Change

The impact of curriculum change is felt by everyone in our education system. Supporting the work of stakeholders during times of curriculum change is an important feature of NCCA's work. This work involves collaboration and engagement throughout the process of reviewing, developing, enacting and sustaining curriculum change. To further support the redevelopment of the Primary School Curriculum, NCCA have convened a number of events and activities that support stakeholder engagement. These include a BEACONS event with School Communities, Curriculum Seminars, the Leading Out Seminar Series and the establishment of an Advisory Panel.

BEACONS (Bringing Education Alive for Communities on a National Scale) 

In March 2022, NCCA hosted a BEACONS event in collaboration with the Teaching Council. This event provided the opportunity for a range of stakeholders including children, parents, teachers, school leaders and national bodies to come together and share their perspectives, views and ideas on the future of a Primary School Curriculum in Ireland.

A report and video capturing the activities of the day can be viewed below.

From Purpose to Practice

To support the redevelopment of the Primary School Curriculum an Advisory Panel (Primary) has been established.

From Purpose to Practice is a collaborative document emerging from NCCA’s work with the Advisory Panel (Primary) and is intended to support stakeholders to engage with the ‘big ideas’ of curriculum change. 

A suite of short videos also containing the key ideas in the document have been developed. You can access these within the document itself and below.
