INTRODUCTION

Repeat Leaving Certificate - Course Details.

The Repeat Leaving Certificate provides learners with a fresh opportunity to maximise their points in preparation for third level. It is also suitable for both learners who have just completed the Leaving Certificate or who have completed their Leaving Certificate in the past two years and have a desire to return to education. This is an intensive one year revision course which will facilitate all learners to reach their personal goals. Our objective is to offer learners the additional support they need to improve their performance in their Leaving Certificate. There are regular assessments and attendance is taken daily. Guidance on progress and motivation is offered to learners and to parents.

‘I found the school community to be accommodating and helpful. My progress was regularly monitored and I found great support there. There is a desire for everyone to reach their full potential.’
James Lambert Repeat Leaving Certificate 2012.
