SCHOOL SUPPORT APPLICATION 2019/2020

Primary Language Curriculum/Curaclam Teanga na Bunscoile (PLC/CTB)

We have reached full capacity for sustained support for PLC/CTB for Phase 1 applications. Phase 2 of sustained support for the PLC/CTB will open in June 2020 and schools will be notified closer to the time with details of how to apply.

For schools who are not in receipt of Sustained Support during Phase 1, the following supports are available to assist with continued implementation of the curriculum:

  • A series of PLC/CTB webinars produced by PDST are available on a termly basis. Webinar 1 is currently available HERE on the PDST website. Schools are encouraged to discuss/explore/reflect on the ideas being presented in the webinars, in the context of their own school.
  • A range of support material and examples of children’s language learning are also available at www.curriculumonline.ie. Schools are encouraged to become familiar with this material and to begin using it to inform their teaching of English and Gaeilge. (Circular 45/2019, p.5&6)
