Summer Courses for Primary Teachers

The Summer Course Programme overview (EPV days-approved courses) for primary teachers has just been published and in an exciting development for language upskilling, a brand new category of course has been added for 2024:   

Language upskilling (including French / German / Spanish and others) in preparation for the introduction of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) as part of the Primary Curriculum Framework for stages 3 and 4 of primary school (NCCA, 2023; Circular Letter 0017/2023)
