We are in the process of developing our Transition Year (TY) Programme at present which will start in August 2022. The programme will provide students with lots of opportunities to learn, mature and develop as self-directed learners.
TY students will undertake group projects, work experience placements and lots of TY specific modules. Students will have the opportunity to pursue aspects of personal development, enabling them to be better prepared for further education and adult working life. It is hoped that all students will develop a greater sense of personal responsibility, greater awareness of their role in society and a clearer vision of their path in life.
The timeline in terms of setting up TY is as follows:
(a) Information sessions for third-year students and parents/guardians
(b) an application process - an application form will have to be completed and students will be interviewed
(c) Offer of places - places will be offered in May
(d) Course starts in August 2022
We will be working with students, parents and staff to develop this programme. More information will be posted in the months ahead.
