Delighted to announce that the Expression Of Interest (EOI) process for schools that are considering introducing Leaving Certificate Computer Science (LCCS) to their curriculum  in 2023/24 is now open.

The EOI is submitted through a Google form and the details supplied by your school will help the Department of Education to put an appropriate programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in place for teachers and school leaders. This CPD programme will be delivered by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) and is scheduled to commence during the current school year (circa April/May 2023). 

The Expression Of Interest form is available HERE:  tinyurl.com/LCCS-2023

The form should be completed by both the school principal and the teacher(s) who will be teaching LCCS from September 2023. A maximum of two teachers per school can be accommodated on the CPD programme. If two teachers are involved with LCCS in 2023/24, each teacher must complete the form separately. Please note that schools already offering LCCS may complete the EOI process if they wish to add a new teacher to the CPD programme (e.g. if there is a new teacher or a change of teacher for the 5th or 6th year classes in September 2023). The closing date for completing the EOI form is Thursday, February 9th, 2023. 

Finally, there will be an online information session on LCCS 6-7pm Monday, January 23rd, 2023 (flyer attached). School leaders and teachers will have the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from schools who are already running LCCS and ask any questions relating to getting up and running with this exciting new subject. All are welcome - Zoom registration link below.
