LCVP course – (Consists of two link modules called Preparation for the World of Work and Enterprise Education)

Students are advised, when making their optional subject choices, to focus on the subjects that will best serve their interests for the Leaving Certificate and beyond.

If after this process, their subjects’ combination allows them to participate in LCVP they are required to do so, because of its unique educational value.

The educational value of LCVP arises by completion of the Link Modules over two years of the LCVP. The experience in these modules prepares students for project completion, case study preparation, and portfolio completion. All of these will enhance students’ skills as they progress into further and higher education.
