Leaving Cert Applied


The Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained two-year programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life. It offers alternative methods of learning and assessment for students. Students are assessed on a regular basis and all marks (credits gained) form part of the students’ Leaving Certificate grade.
There is general agreement among students who have taken Leaving Certificate Applied, and their parents and teachers, that the programme is an excellent preparation for adult life, for further education, training and for the world of work
The two year programme is broken down into four sessions in which students can work towards credits. The course is based on a foundation of continuous assessment and terminal exams. Credits are awarded for completion of Key Assignments, tasks and achieving 90% attendance. Students are also awarded credits for performance in a series of interviews where they are required to talk about and reflect on their learning experiences. Students are required to complete eight weeks of work experience over the duration of the two year course.
