3. GCE in Senior Cycle Curriculum



Integrating GCE into senior cycle curriculum ensures that students can explore GCE themes as part of their formal learning experience. As the curriculum is being reformed we see more elements like sustainability mainstreamed through subject areas. The optional subject of Politics and Society is very in line with the concepts and practice of Global Citizenship Education. Senior Cycle puts a huge emphasis on the skill of critical thinking something that WWGS and GCE in general put at it’s heart.
