IMPORTANT UPDATE: Junior Cycle Physical Education

The new 135 hour curriculum specification for Junior Cycle Physical Education was published by the NCCA yesterday (Friday, 28/10/22) and will be introduced from September 2023, starting with incoming 1st years.

The specification for Junior Cycle Physical Education focuses on developing a physically literate young person. It develops the knowledge, understanding, skills and values to facilitate students’ informed, confident and competent participation in physical activity and a commitment to lifelong engagement.

The PEAI will, as always, endeavour to support our members with the introduction of the new curriculum Specification in the months and years ahead.
