The Department of Education and Skills is looking to select two early learning and care settings to participate in a pilot project which will run over three years with the aim to improve learner
competence, confidence and disposition to Irish in English-medium schools and early learning and care settings. The approach being piloted (CLIL) provides for the delivery of aspects of the curriculum through a language that is not the medium of instruction in the school. The settings must be participating in the ECCE programme and implementing the Aistear curriculum framework.
As part of the project, CPD resources and training will be provided to participating settings. If you are interested in learning more about this project and applying to participate, you will find the application form and further information at the following link:
