Second-Level Blueprint

Launched in June 2009, Taking the Next Step, A Blueprint for Educate Together Second-level Schools brings the vision, mission, values and commitments of Educate Together into the context of second-level education in Ireland.

The core principles of Educate Together, that schools are multi-denominational, co-educational, learner-centred and democratically-run are explored in the second-level context under 4 key areas:

  • Curriculum, Teaching & Learning
  • The Ethical Curriculum
  • Leadership, Management & Structure
  • The Built Environment

Drawing widely on current Irish and international research, the Blueprint outlines how providing an integrated approach to curriculum at junior cycle will improve teacher-student relationships, ease primary-secondary transition and provide a more relevant, connected learning experience for young people.
