Leaving Certificate Applied Programme 22/23 – Year 1

Programme Aim
The Leaving Certificate Applied programme is part of the expanded senior cycle provision designed to cater for the diversity of participants’ needs. It consists of three elements – General Education, Vocational Education and Vocational Preparation and is designed to emphasise areas of achievement and excellence which are not catered for by the traditional academic programmes. The Leaving Certificate Applied programme has evolved from curriculum development projects aimed at strengthening the technological/vocational options and the development of personal skills at senior cycle.

The duration of the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme Cycle can vary from one to two years.
