The Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme taken after Junior Cycle and before the two-year Leaving Certificate programme.
General Information On Transition Year:
There is no state examination at the end of Transition Year. Assessment is usually carried out on an ongoing basis and can include school-based assessment of projects or portfolios, oral, aural, practical and written activities.
Evaluation of activities such as work experience or community service will often involve the providers or hosts of such activities.
Some modules may have their own assessment arrangements.
New courses, called transition units, are currently being developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), in collaboration with teachers and agencies.
