Junior Cycle SPHE Resources

The HSE has developed and updated resources to support the revised 2023 SPHE Specification for Junior Cycle. The resources were developed by the HSE and are supported by the Department of Education and the NCCA. There are currently six units of learning available to download, with more to follow in 2024.

How to use this SPHE Resource:

Teachers can choose the learning activities that are appropriate for their class based on their students’ needs and interests. There are currently 2 units for RSE and Making Healthy Choices, the learnings from unit 1 are further developed in unit 2, however the units are not aligned to year groups, therefore for example, activities in RSE 1 are not just suitable for 1st year students. Teachers can choose any of the learning activities in these resources to plan teaching and learning across their Junior Cycle SPHE Programme.
