Last year the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment initiated a process aimed at updating and revising the curriculum and assessment methods for Leaving Certificate Economics.

On behalf of the IEA, Dr. Kevin Denny (UCD), Dr. Aedin Doris (Maynooth University) & Dr. Stephen Kinsella (UL) prepared a response to the original.

The original NCCA back ground paper is available at NCCA report and the response prepared by the Irish Economic Association is available at IEA Response.

The NCCA is running a consultation on a new draft Leaving Certificate Economics specification. The consultation will run until Friday, 17th February. A link to the online consultation survey and the draft specification is available here.
