Some sample learning programmes

In developing some sample learning programmes that would demonstrate the guidelines in action, schools identified students from the relevant target group and generated a learning programme for them. The learning programmes describe a range of activities that schools are currently using with their students. The activities described in the sample learning programmes relate to the schools’ own experiences in working towards an existing qualification/award, in some cases this is the QQI Level 2 Certificate in General learning and in others, it is the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) award.

The sample learning programmes describe the PLUs for each student. The PLUs are chosen with the specific profile and needs of the student in mind. In general, it is envisaged that a student’s learning programme would run for the duration of junior cycle, and on completion this would lead to a JCPA. It should be emphasised that the learning programmes do not describe the totality of the student’s learning. There are other learning activities and experiences the student might undertake over the course of junior cycle that may not be described in the learning programme.

Learning programmes can include learning that is curricular and extra-curricular.
