 The Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme, open to all our students with appropriate subject groupings, prepares students for life after school, for further education, the world of work and the business of making a living.

Students take the usual seven Leaving Certificate subjects plus three link modules entitled - Enterprise Education, Preparation for Work, Work Experience. The link modules course has continuous assessment and a final examination. The results of the L.C.V.P. examination (awarded as pass, merit, distinction) are included on the Leaving Certificate.
