Transition Year

Transition Year is a one-year bridging programme that enables you to develop a broad range of personal, social and academic skills, and ultimately approach Senior Cycle with a greater degree of ability, confidence and maturity. 

The programme helps you make the move from a highly-structured Junior Cycle environment to one where you take greater responsibility for your own learning and decision making. Within the programme, you will participate in learning strategies which are active and experiential and which help you to develop a range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. It also provides an opportunity for you to develop an awareness of the value of education in preparing you for the ever-changing demands of the adult world of work and social relationships.
