Transition Year

Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme after the Junior Cycle and before the Leaving Certificate programme.
Students follow school-designed courses in core subjects and have opportunities to explore new subjects which may later be taken to Leaving Certificate level.

It provides a one-year personal exploratory journey in which the students can learn more about themselves – their talents, abilities and attitudes to others and to society in general.

TY offers fantastic opportunities for students to be involved in experiential learning in a wide variety of subject areas:

  • GAISCE – The President’s Award
  • Face Buddies
  • Voluntary Work Experience
  • Industrial Work Experience
  • Career Guidance
  • World Wise Schools Programme
  • Work Shadowing
  • Mentoring
  • Paired Reading
  • Outreach Art Projects
  • Mini Company
  • Enterprise Education
