Junior Cycle – Short Course

Wellbeing Programme - Life Skills Module.

“The Law & You”

We have created a unique and niche eLearning course for the junior cycle student called ‘The Law & You’.

Under the mandatory wellbeing curriculum, LawEd has created a programme on legal literacy which can be used within the life skills module.

This is self-directed, 21st century learning using cross platform devices.

This course can be run over a 6/10-week period and is suitable and adaptable to all school timetables.

Educators and facilitators will also be provided with access and to workbooks which will enhance learning and debate of this short life skills course.

Educators and facilitators will be updated on students’ progress throughout.

Simple 2-step enrolment process.

LawEd is today one of the premier providers of law workshops having worked now with thousands of students nationwide. We have an exemplary record on the people side of the profession as educators, trainers and content makers.
