Consultation Report on the draft L1 and L2 specifications for Leaving Certificate Irish
The Consultation Report on Draft Specifications for Leaving Certificate Irish T1 and T2 records and responds to the views of stakeholders gathered during the consultation in 2021. It considers, in detail, the feedback received on the draft specifications for Leaving Certificate Irish T1 and T2. It also captures feedback on the potential implications for the implementation of the specifications and summarises systemic considerations that arose, such as the model of curricular provision for Irish.
What’s happening now?
NCCA is pausing development work on the draft T1 and T2 specifications for Leaving Certificate Irish.
The Council is undertaking additional research on the model of provision and frameworks used to inform the development of curricula for native languages in jurisdictions with a similar language profile.
What’s happening next?
NCCA will convene a series of stakeholder seminars to inform advice on the model of provision for Leaving Certificate Irish, considering feedback from this consultation and broader changes as part of Senior Cycle redevelopment. In addition, NCCA will work with key stakeholders and education partners to prioritise planning for enhanced professional learning and support.
