The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) has described the findings of the PISA 2015 study as an endorsement of the high quality work of Irish teachers and students at a time of hugely damaging cuts to education. In all three areas which were examined, the scores of Irish students were significantly above the OECD average.
Following an invitation issued on 8th November by the Chair of the Teachers’ Conciliation Council (TCC) to ASTI, INTO, TUI, the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, TUI engaged with the other parties in discussions on a range of issues in recent weeks.
In September 2015, TUI members accepted, in a national ballot, the proposals set out in the document - Junior Cycle Reform: Joint Statement on Principles and Implementation (including the Appendix “Professional Time to support Implementation”).
TUI understands that the Assessment Task booklet for third years of Junior Cycle English will arrive in schools on Monday, November 28th.
TUI members who teach Junior Cycle History are encouraged to participate in the online consultation which is being carried out by the NCCA and which closes on December 2nd. The consultation is accessible at: http://juniorcycle.ie/Curriculum/Subjects/History/History?lang=en-GB
