Leaving Certificate Applied

As part of our proud tradition for catering for the needs of all our students, we also offer the innovative Leaving Certificate Applied Programme for students who wish to follow a practical programme with a strong Vocational emphasis. The LCA programme is a well-established two year alternative to the Leaving Certificate, preparing students for adult and working life.

The LCA recognises the talents of all students and provides opportunities for development in terms of self-knowledge, self-esteem and responsibility. It is a distinct, self-contained two-year Leaving Certificate programme aimed at preparing learners for adult and working life. LCA emphasises forms of achievement and excellence while offering learners a specific opportunity to prepare for and progress to further education and training

Key Principles of LCA:

  • student centered curriculum
  • personal and social development
  • integration and cross curricular links
  • team work
  • literacy & numeracy development
  • active teaching/learning methodologies
  • reflection
  • community links
