Introduction

A consultation with young people on the reform of the Junior Cycle took place in November 2010. The consultation was organised by the Office of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs (OMCYA), the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) and the Dáil na nÓg Council.

The consultation arose from one of the top two recommendations voted for by delegates at the 9th Dáil na nÓg in March 2010 and also the NCCA’s consultation process on the reform of the Junior Cycle.
