The Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme is open to students who take a particular combination of subjects and European Language or Language Module.

This qualifies the student to take ‘Enterprise Modules’, which aim to foster adaptability and initiative and develop communication and technological skills.

This work is assessed on the basis of a portfolio and written exam.

The vast majority of students are capable of taking this course and the benefits, in terms of confidence gained and skills acquired, are very significant.
