We have adapted a number of resources from our JA Programmes for use in self-directed learning and to help students #keeplearning at home. Click on the images below to open a downloadable version of the resources.
The resources are all aligned with the formal curriculum, easy-to-use and have been successfully facilitated by thousands of volunteers in schools nationwide.

In partnership with Accenture, JA’s employability programme integrates the Accenture Skills to Succeed Academy (S2S), a digital platform for use by senior cycle second level students. Effective Communication. Teamwork. Personal Brand. Interview Skills. Students practice and develop these skills and understand their relevance to school, to work, and to life.
ENTERPRISE IN ACTION (15-18 Years)
Supported by Citi Foundation JA Enterprise in Action encourages students to examine the role of an entrepreneur in today’s society. Students will review entrepreneurship and acknowledge the importance of developing entrepreneurial skills for future roles, as well as the value of ‘intrapreneurship’ and social entrepreneurship in today’s economy and society.
Students work with tangible examples of entrepreneurship, such as product ideation, to enable them to practice skills and acquire knowledge. Students also have the opportunity to create a video to promote their newly created social enterprise, and be in with the chance to win a €50 voucher.

Finance Your Future, supported by the Metlife Foundation, covers real-to-life topics like balancing your own personal budget, learning about the importance of saving as well as an introduction to pensions.
