JCT Business Studies Update

JCT Business Studies image

Below is the latest update from the JCT Business Studies Team. They will be hosting a series of face-to-face elective CPD events across the country in March and April 2022.

Dear Business Studies Teacher,
 
We are delighted to announce that JCT Business Studies Team will be hosting a series of face-to-face elective CPD events across the country in March and April 2022.  These elective CPD events will establish sustainable Communities of Practice among Junior Cycle Business Studies teachers in Education Centres and other venues nationwide.
 
The JCT Business Studies team will host an initial two-hour workshop at various Education Centres from 7pm to 9pm. The initial workshop will be followed by a three-week window of online engagement whereby each Community of Practice will share ideas and resources in specific identified ‘Focus Areas’ relating to subject planning.  We will also host a second two-hour workshop in each participating venue (also 7pm to 9pm) to further support the Community of Practice and to ensure that it can continue to develop and thrive. Registration for these elective events can be accessed directly with each participating Education Centre/Venue (full details below).
 
This Initiative will support any Business Studies subject team wishing to develop their Subject Plan and Teaching & Learning resources. This is a fantastic opportunity for Junior Cycle Business Studies teachers to connect with colleagues and to help further develop and support each other in the area of subject planning.
 
Please note the following:

  • If possible, two Business Studies teachers per school to attend
  • Registration requires that you attend both evening sessions, in your chosen venue
  • Please bring a fully charged Laptop or device for use on both evenings
  • Classroom Poster resources will be provided to each participant
  • Attendance Certificates will be provided on each evening

 
Below, please find details of participating Education Centres, dates for workshops and registration links. Additional venues and dates will be added soon. Information regarding additional venues and dates will be communicated through the JCT Business Studies mailing list.
 
Kind regards,
JCT Business Studies Team
