Update for May 2020

JCT Leadership Team Update May 2020 


The Junior Cycle for Teachers Spring 2020 Leadership seminars entitled ‘Leading a student-centred approach to assessment’ will now not take place until a later (to be confirmed) date in 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


The JCT Leadership team are continuing to support school leaders in implementing junior cycle reform in their schools. This has been facilitated by the provision of three supplementary webinars in reaction to the needs, as they emerge, for school leaders in the current context.


Thursday 30th April – Subject department planning; Some short and long-term considerations for school leaders


Thursday 7th May - Arrangements for assessment and reporting for students concluding Junior Cycle in May 2020 – Some considerations for school leaders


As part of the JCT Weeks of Webinars event we also aired a webinar to support school leaders with planning the Wellbeing Programme for 2020/21. This webinar entitled Leadership & Management of the Wellbeing Programme in the Junior Cycle Curriculum was broadcast on 21st April.


Recordings of these webinars can now be accessed in our Resources section of the JCT website.


If you have any questions in relation to any of the above, or indeed any other issues related to the leadership and management of junior cycle, please contact the leadership team at Fiona.obrien@jct.ie or helen.costello@jct.ie
