Leaving Certificate Applied

The Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained two-year programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life. The programme puts an emphasis on forms of achievement and excellence, which the established Leaving Certificate has not recognised in the past. The Leaving Certificate Applied is intended to meet the needs of those students who are not adequately catered for by other Leaving Certificate programmes or who choose not to opt for such programmes.
 
The Leaving Certificate Applied subjects offered are:
 
Vocational Preparation and Guidance
English and Communications
Mathematical Applications
Introduction to Information Technology
Information and Communication Technology
Social Education
French
Gaeilge
Leisure and Recreation
Hair & Beauty
Religion
