In April, NCCA published support materials in the ‘SPHE/RSE Toolkits’ for primary and post-primary school teachers. The materials aim to support teachers in preparing for and teaching SPHE and RSE using the Primary School Curriculum as well as the Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle curricula at post-primary level. The toolkits are available here:
The materials respond to findings in the NCCA’s review of RSE (2019) and are designed to support teachers to independently and collaboratively progress their professional development in SPHE. The toolkits also include a ‘Resources to Teach’ section which compiles resources that can support teachers in planning for teaching and learning in SPHE. The resources have been carefully mapped to strands / strand units of the relevant curricula to facilitate preparation for teaching. More support materials will be added to the toolkits in the coming months.
