The Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP) is a national programme sponsored by the Department of Education and Science and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment. It is designed to help schools and teachers develop a student centred approach to the Junior Certificate for young people who are potential early school leavers.

During the school year the students follow the same programme as the regular junior Certificate, but they also follow a range of subject statements and achieve learning targets. These are kept in folders. The students take part in cross-curricular statements to encourage links with different subjects.
