Transition Year Programme

Transition Year Programme

“To promote the personal, social, educational and vocational development of pupils and to prepare them for their role as autonomous, participative, and responsible members of society.”

In Coláiste Chraobh Abhann the Transition Year Programme is optional after completing their Junior Certificate Examination. The TY Programme in Coláiste Chraobh Abhann has been designed to act as a bridge between Junior and Senior Cycle. It offers educational experiences where the emphasis will be on the personal, social, and vocational development of each individual student, with a view to the attainment of increased maturity. Our programme also aims to enhance our students’ critical thinking ability, to develop self- directed learning to promote maturity and allow the students the opportunity to engage in a variety of community and business initiatives.The TY Programme prepares our students for the many academic challenges that the Leaving Certificate Programme demands.It will enable the students to take greater responsibility for their own learning and decision making. The students will participate in learning strategies which are active and experimental and which will help them to develop a range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem solving skills. It provides the students to broaden their educational experiences beyond the classroom.

The TY Programme aims to develop four main aspects of our students

  • The Personal: to develop, mature and discover more about one’s personal strengths and a sense of responsibility
  • The Social: to become more aware of society and the contribution they can make to promote the value of caring for others
  • The Professional: to experience the workplace and to explore and identify possible career options
  • The Educational: ­­­­­­­­­­­­to experience and explore the different subjects available to them on the Leaving Certificate Programme with a view to making informed choices relating to their future careers; to take ownership of their learning.
