Level 1 Learning Programmes (L1LPs)

The purpose of the guidelines for L1LPs is to assist teachers in designing learning programmes to meet the specific needs of the students with learning needs in the range identified. The guidelines have been developed with a number of schools and settings already working with this group of students. The engagement with schools has highlighted many of the issues and challenges experienced in meeting the needs of this group of students. It has also provided the opportunity to identify and explore examples of good practice in teaching and learning in this area and confirmed that the exemplification of student learning and achievement—a feature of NCCA’s junior cycle specifications—will also need to be a strong feature in assisting teachers and schools to meet the needs of these students.
