Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme LCVP
This is a Senior Cycle programme which students may take in as part of the established Leaving Certificate. It focuses on preparing students for the workplace. During this two year programme two link modules are covered: The World of Work and Enterprise Education. These link modules endeavour to identify the strong vocational links between students’ optional subjects. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in a work experience module.
A portfolio of project work is also compiled and each student must sit a written exam in the May of their Leaving Cert year.
Grades achieved in LCVP are recognised as part of the Leaving Certificate and as such are recognised by all 3rd level institutions. The grades are as follows:
LCVP Points = Grade
68 Points = Distinction
46 Points = Merit
28 Points = Pass
