Leaving Certificate Applied

Leaving Certificate Applied is an alternative to the traditional Leaving Certificate. It is a two year programme designed to suit students who find academic work difficult. Students who wish to pursue courses in some third level colleges can do so by completing a further year in a Post-Leaving Certificate course. Leaving Certificate Applied does not suit students who wish to go directly to University.

Features of Leaving Certificate Applied:

  • Each module is designed to last half a year and is examined at the end of that time.
  • Modules are built around projects, tasks and activities.
  • Work experience is an integral part of the programme and takes place every Monday.
  • Most marks are awarded for tasks & class work completed during the two years in school.
