Business Studies

New Junior Cycle Business Studies

Junior Cycle Business Studies focuses on improving students’ understanding of the business environment through the three inter-connected strands: Personal Finance, Enterprise and Our Economy.

Business studies aims to stimulate students’ interest in the business environment and how they interact with it. It develops skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours that allow them to make informed and responsible decisions with all the resources available to them, ensuring their and society’s well-being, while becoming more self-aware as learners.

The staff working within the Business Department endeavour to take a dynamic approach to teaching the subject of Business Studies over a 3 year programme designed in full alignment with the new Junior Cycle Business Studies Specification.

We hope to guide you in achieving all the required Learning Outcomes and prepare you for the new Assessment techniques as set out by the NCCA.
