The original discussion paper and video material, documents and reports from the consultations can also be accessed here.


A large number of people, agencies and groups were involved in the consultation on the development of junior cycle education.  The feedback from these submissions, questionnaire and meetings informed the continuing work in the area of junior cycle.

Other projects and initiatives fed into the development of our thinking on the new Junior Cycle.
