Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA)

After Junior Cycle/Transition year we offer two parallel programmes, the conventional Leaving Certificate and the Leaving Certificate Applied.

Leaving Cert Applied (LCA) is a recognised practical based programme aimed at those students who have difficulty accessing the depth of study needed for the conventional Leaving Certificate. Leaving Certificate Applied students participate in a series of structured tasks, projects, interviews, oral exams and final written exams. Attendance of 90% is required by students on the programme. Students can use this qualification to access further education through the Post Leaving Certificate Course (PLC) route and other training programmes. Students undertake one day’s work experience per week over the two years.
