The Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained two-year Leaving Certificate programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life.
The programme sets out to recognise the talents of all students and to provide opportunities for developing personal responsibility self -esteem and self -knowledge. The programme focuses on the talents of each student and helps students apply what they learn to the real world.
The two-year programme consists of four half-year blocks called sessions. Credits are gained throughout the course of two years by 90% and the completion of key assignments in each module. Students also participate in work experience every Tuesday throughout the two years. On completion of the LCA programme, students are awarded a Distinction, Merit or Pass.
