The Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (L.C.V.P.) which is recognised by IBEC and rewards students with additional certification in their Leaving Certificate was introduced into this school for Fifth Years in September 1994. One hundred and twenty eight students (64 5th year & 64 6th years) who are eligible, i.e. who meet the vocational subject grouping requirements, are taking the programme this year.

L.C.V.P. students undertake two modules, Enterprise Education and Preparation for the World of Work.

Students have the opportunity to meet with Entrepreneurs when they travel out to visit  businesses or when they invite the Entrepreneurs into the classroom. The students also undertake the planning, organisation and execution of an enterprise activity. Funds raised are donated to a charity of their choice each year. Enterprise events organised by LCVP students have included: Football Tournaments, FCJs Fittest Friends, Cake Sales, Numeracy Table Quiz, Talent Show, Treasure Hunts, Building of classroom Library, Fashion Show, etc.

Through the Preparation for the World of Work module students research and investigate career opportunities, develop job seeking skills such as letter writing, C.V. presentation and interview techniques. They also gain experience of the world of work through practical work experience or work shadowing in a career area of their choice.

L.C.V.P., which is examined at a common level, is recognised for points by the Institutes of Technology and Universities.

In addition to the points value placed on it L.C.V.P. provides students with opportunities to build self-confidence, creativity, initiative and develop teamwork, communication and computer skills.
