Following representations from the ASTI the Department of Education have provided notification that schools are being given the option to defer the increase of wellbeing provision at Junior Cycle, for incoming first years, from 300 to 400 hours by one year, until the 2022/23 academic year. This is in recognition that the disruption caused by the further school closures in 2021, as a result of the pandemic, may present challenges in some cases in moving to this level of provision from September. This decision will be incorporated in the Junior Cycle circular for the 2021/22 school year, to be published later this year.
