Leaving Certificate LCVP (Link Modules)
LCVP is much like many other Leaving Cert subjects, however it places emphasis on the work done in other subjects as well as in extracurricular work and activities. The primary goal of the LCVP is to prepare young people for adult life by ensuring that they are educated broadly, with an ability to cope and thrive in an environment of rapid change. Participants in the programme are encouraged to develop skills and competencies fundamental to both academic and work success.
Throughout the programme students are encouraged to:
· Be innovative and enterprising
· Take responsibility for their own learning
· Adapt to changing circumstances
· Evaluate data and devise solutions to problems
· Communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively
· Work with others as part of a team
· Investigate and plan career options
· Use information and communications technologies
· Investigate local businesses and community enterprises
· Learn from their experience
· At least five Leaving Certificate subjects, one of which must be Irish
· Two of the above subjects must be selected from one of the designated Vocational Subject Groupings
· Two Link Modules: Preparation for the World of Work and Enterprise Education
· A recognised course in a Modern European Language other than Irish or English
The Vocational Subject groupings are as follows.
