The Senior Cycle (including Transition Year)

The Senior Cycle is a two or three year programme at post-primary school. It builds on the learning at Junior Cycle and aims to deepen students’ knowledge and understanding and key skills in advance of undertaking further study, joining the workforce and becoming a responsible adult and an active member of their communities.

It comprises different programme of study such as:

Transition Year (Optional)

Leaving Certificate Established

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme

Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (not currenlty offered at Hansfield ETSS)

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) is the national body responsible for the development of the curriculum and assessment strategies for Senior Cycle. A lot of general information about the Senior Cycle in all schools is available through its website (see link below)

The State Examinations Commission (SEC) is the body responsible for overseeing the Leaving Certificate Examinations. It provides general details on its website (see Link below) but the school will provide the details to all students at the relevant stages.
