We endeavour to equip our students with key skills for the future and instil in them a love of lifelong learning  as well as personal growth.

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme

The primary goal of the LCVP is to prepare young people for adult life by ensuring that they are educated in the broadest sense, with an ability to cope and thrive in an environment of rapid change. Participants in the programme are encouraged to develop skills and competencies fundamental to both academic and vocational success.

Throughout the programme students are encouraged to:

  • Be innovative and enterprising
  • Take responsibility for their own learning
  • Adapt to changing circumstances
  • Evaluate data and devise solutions to problems
  • Communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively
  • Work with others as part of a team.
  • Investigate and plan career options.
  • Use information and communications technologies.
  • Investigate local businesses and community enterprises.
  • Learn from their experiences.
