The development of a new curriculum specification for Junior Cycle Geography is currently underway.
Background Paper for Junior Cycle Geography
The purpose of the background paper is to explore the development of the subject at junior cycle; to highlight good practice at home and abroad and to use evidence-based research to inform the revision of the specification.

The consultation on the Background Paper is now closed.
The NCCA has established development groups to undertake specific tasks in subjects in order to provide a strong, representative voice to its work. The Geography Development Group consists of nominees from a range of education stakeholders including teacher and management bodies, Department of Education and Skills, and the State Examinations Commission. The new specification for Geography will be developed by the Geography Development Group.
