Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA)
The LCA is a distinct, stand-alone Leaving Certificate (LC) programme. It is designed for students who are not immediately looking at 3rd level education or those students who may find the concentrated workload of the established LC very difficult. It is also an ideal programme for students who may be interested in entering the workforce directly after completing their second level education. Please see below for links to all the information you may need in making a choice around LCA.
