» LCVP is an additional 8th subject option

Students taking part in the traditional Leaving Certificate will also have the option of completing three link modules to give a more vocationally oriented curriculum. The link modules are:

  • Preparation for the World of Work
  • Enterprise
  • Work Experience

These link modules are assessed by producing a folder over the two years of the Leaving Certificate and also an exam at the end of the second year. Students will be awarded points on the successful completion of the link modules which can be used to increase their Leaving Certificate points for entry to colleges.
