Published: Tuesday, November 21, 2023
The National Women’s Council provided feedback to the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment’s draft specification for Senior Cycle Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) curriculum which is being updated and will be in place in September 2024. In this submission, NWC provides an intersectional feminist analysis of the draft curriculum and highlights the importance of SPHE and RSE (Relationships and Sexuality Education) for realising gender equality and preventing violence against women and girls. NWC would like to acknowledge Pavee Point for their inputs.
