Senior Cycle SPHE Consultation

A public consultation has now opened on the background paper and review brief for the redevelopment of senior cycle SPHE. It is most important that school communities, educators, parents, and students have a voice in this process and the NCCA’s consultation pathways are set out here:

https://ncca.ie/en/senior-cycle/curriculum-developments/senior-cycle-social-personal-and-health-education-sphe/

Alternatively, schools and individuals can email sphedevelopments@ncca.ie to share their perspectives on questions such as:

  • Should senior cycle SPHE be mandatory for all senior cycle students in all schools?
    Why/why not?
  • How much time should be allocated to SPHE in senior cycle?
  • In framing a senior cycle curriculum, what’s the really important learning that young people need to acquire in SPHE?

The consultation closes at 5.00pm on 6th December next.
