NCCA has developed a new 135-hour specification for Junior Cycle Physical Education which is aligned to the Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) and will be implemented in schools from September 2022.
The specification is structured around three strands and aims to develop students as competent and confident physical activity participants in a range of physical activities. It aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions on their involvement in physical activity either through the pursuit of recreational participation or sport. It supports students’ motivation to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle while instilling an appreciation of the benefits of physical activity participation.
The new specification will be available to download from https://www.curriculumonline.ie/Home/ once published.
