New features of this specification include learning outcomes across three strands, oral language, reading and writing.

There is a new focus given to oral communication which aims to promote greater engagement and thinking in the classroom and beyond. There will also be a new assessment in oral language as well as of students’ collections of written school work.

Teachers, students and parents will be able to check progress by logging in to samples of student work where they will see the range of texts that students in junior cycle English create and see the learning outcomes in action.
