Junior Cycle short courses in new Modern Languages are being developed by the PPLI. These 100 hour courses are based on the Framework for Junior Cycle (DES, 2015) and on the Junior Cycle Short Courses Draft Handbook ‘Developing Short Courses in Junior Cycle’ which includes the Course Specifications template as well as guidelines and useful appendices. The Framework provides the ‘learning statements’ and key skills which all short courses are based upon. For all reference documents please consult the NCCA dedicated Junior Cycle Short Courses page. Click here 

New Modern Languages Short Courses are aligned to both the Junior Cycle Framework and NCCA template and to the European benchmark for modern languages, the Council of Europe Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The courses will also be compatible with purpose-made language e-Portfolios based on the European Language Portfolio (ELP). For information on the potential for alignment of the two frameworks, see here (article) and here (table).

This section contains the generic Modern Languages documents, language-specific Junior Cycle short courses based on these in Japanese, Russian, and Irish Sign Language (ISL). Polish is currently being planned. Information on these can be obtained by contacting Karen Ruddock, PPLI National Coordinator, directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.
