Junior Cycle FAQs

Friday 06 October 2017

On Saturday, June 10th, a ASTI Special Convention passed a motion to suspend industrial action on the Lansdowne Road Agreement and Junior Cycle reform.

As a result of the suspension of industrial action, ASTI members must co-operate with all aspects of the Framework for Junior Cycle.

Reduced teaching time

From September 2017, in all subject areas, full-time teachers involved in the delivery of Junior Cycle will be entitled to an annual allocation of 22 hours of professional time (40 minutes per week), with a pro-rata entitlement for part-time teachers.
