Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme

The LCVP is a Leaving Certificate with a focus on enterprise and preparation for working life. This two-year programme combines the academic strengths of the Leaving Certificate with a dynamic focus on self-directed learning, enterprise, work and the community. In most ways the LCVP is like the established Leaving Certificate. LCVP students take two additional courses, called Link Modules, in the areas of Preparation for the World of Work and Enterprise Education.

In March 2022 Minister for Education, Norma Foley announced details the planned reform of senior cycle. Arising from this announcement, students starting 5th year in the academic year 2022/2023 may access the LCVP without having to meet the subject-specific criteria. This removes the need to choose two subjects from the designated Vocational Subject Groupings (VSGs) and the need to follow a recognised course in a Modern European Language (other than Irish or English). A revised programme statement is now available reflecting these changes.

Revised LCVP Programme

Currently, all students in Colaiste na Riochta study the LCVP programme.
