Leaving Certificate Vocational Program

This course offers an enhanced Leaving Certificate in the form of the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme. In addition to taking up to 7 Leaving Cert subjects in the usual way, the LCVP student also undertakes the study of 2 Link Modules- “Enterprise Education” and “Preparation for the World of Work”. The programme focuses on the development of personal enterprise, communication and interpersonal skills, information technology skills and teamwork. It is often described as a
“Leaving Cert Plus”
.

As part of the programme students will be involved in visits out of the classroom and also speakers are invited in. Each student prepares a CV and undertakes a Career Investigation. Each class is involved in organising an enterprise activity, through these activities students learn by “doing”. The Link Modules programme is assessed as part of the Leaving Certificate through a written examination and a portfolio of coursework and is completed fully by the first week in May of the Leaving Cert year.
