What is the Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement (JCPA)?

As part of the Framework for Junior Cycle (2015) the reporting process at junior cycle culminates in the award of the JCPA to students. The JCPA was awarded for the first time to students who completed Junior Cycle in 2017.

2022 was the first time all of the new Junior Cycle specifications have been introduced and the JCPA from this year includes achievements in respect of those specifications.

It will report on student achievement across a broad range of areas of learning in Junior Cycle. The JCPA, alongside other reporting arrangements in Junior Cycle, will offer students/teachers/parents/guardians a clear, broad picture of a child’s learning journey over the three years of junior cycle.

In the majority of cases, the JCPA will report on student achievement relating to subjects and short courses that are broadly aligned with Level 3 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)
