An Academically Approved Approach
JEP has been developed in collaboration with Mary Immaculate College of Education in Limerick. The programme materials have also been reviewed and welcomed by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA). Every step of the programme mirrors strands of the primary curriculum and the links are clearly set out in the Teacher’s Guide. This means the pupils are learning new life skills while covering their core subjects in a fun and engaging way.
Mary Immaculate College has also developed a summer course, closely linked to JEP, called ‘Learning’s the Business: Entrepreneurship in Senior Primary Classes.’ This 20-hour summer course, entitles primary teachers who successfully complete it to 3 EPV days.
