Priority Learning Units Level 2
The third curriculum component in the new junior cycle is the Priority Learning Unit (PLU). A programme based on PLUs will target the very specific group of students with general learning disabilities in the higher functioning moderate and low functioning mild categories.
These students are small in number (one or two in a typical school, more in a special school) and all have Individual Education Plans (IEPs).
The PLUs focus on developing the basic social, pre-vocational and life skills of the students involved. There are five PLUs:
Communicating and literacy
Living in a community
Preparing for work
