Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA)

Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA)

Rockford Manor runs an extremely successful Leaving Certificate Applied Programme which is available every two years.

Places on the programme are limited to 18 students. Selection is based upon completion of an Application Form and interview with the Programme Co-ordinator.

This programme in Rockford has been judged by the Department of Education & Skills to be amongst the very best in Ireland. We have won the Fergal Quinn Award on many occasions, most recently in 2021.

What is LCA (Leaving Certificate Applied)?

The Leaving Certificate Applied is a distinct, self-contained two-year Leaving Certificate programme aimed at preparing students for adult and working life. The programme is pre-vocational by nature and is designed for those students who do not wish to proceed directly to higher education or for those whose needs, aptitudes and learning styles are not fully catered for by the other two Leaving Certificate programmes. Participants in the Leaving Certificate Applied are mainly engaged in work and study of an active, practical and student-centred nature.

The programme sets out to recognise the talents of all students and to provide opportunities for developing personal responsibility, self-esteem and self-knowledge. The programme focuses on the talents of each student and helps students apply what they learn to the real world.

The two-year programme consists of four half-year blocks called sessions. Achievements are credited in each session. Courses are designed on a modular basis and are of thirty hours duration. Each year is divided into two sessions (September to January and February to May) over the two-year duration of the programme. Learners must take a total of 44 modules. They are also required to complete seven Student Tasks over the two years of the programme.

The Leaving Certificate Applied course is available in almost 300 schools nationally.
