Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme
This Programme is an optional part of the Traditional Leaving Certificate Programme in our school.
This programme is the same as the established Leaving Certificate but with the addition of two extra modules to link the Leaving Certificate to the world of work and enterprise. It is currently available to students who select particular combinations of Leaving Certificate subjects. The Link Modules consist of Preparation for The World of World of Work and Enterprise Education. The aim is to encourage students to see the relevance of their subjects to the greater world of business and enterprise and to provide an opportunity to develop skills and talents that will be useful in the workplace. It focuses on developing talents and skills like communications, adaptability, problem solving, confidence and familiarity with technology. As with the established Leaving Certificate students can go on to an apprenticeship, direct employment, training, Further Education and Third Level Studies. LCVP students have the same opportunity to proceed to universities and colleges as students who take the established Leaving Certificate programme. Students who successfully complete the Link Modules gain points, which can be used for the purpose of entry into Third Level Colleges.
