Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCA)

Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCA)

The Leaving Certificate Applied is a self-contained two-year Leaving Certificate Programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life. It is a person-centred programme involving a cross-curricular approach rather than a subject based structure. It puts emphasis on forms of achievement and excellence which the Established Leaving Certificate had not recognised in the past.

Courses offered are Vocational Preparation, which focuses on preparation for work, work experience and enterprise and communications, General Education which gives students general life skills, including the arts, social education, leisure and languages and Vocational Education which is concerned with the development of mathematical and information technology and the practical skills necessary for specialist areas such as tourism, business, horticulture, engineering and technology.

The Leaving Certificate Applied is intended to meet the needs of those students who either choose not to opt for other Leaving Certificate programmes or who are not adequately catered for by other Leaving Certificate programmes. While certification in the Leaving Certificate Applied will not be a qualification for direct entry to third level courses, students who successfully complete the programme will be able to proceed to many Post Leaving Certificate courses.
