Transition Year

The Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme taken after Junior Cycle and before the two-year Senior Cycle programme. In Enniscorthy Community College, Transition Year is currently an optional programme which is offered dependent on sufficient demand. However, Transition Year will be compulsory for students entering First Year from 2022 – 2023.

Transition Year provides a bridge to enable students make the transition from the more dependent type of learning associated with Junior Cycle to the more independent learning environment associated with Senior Cycle. It encourages the development of a wide variety of transferable critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills.

Mission

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.

Overall Aims

The following aims are strongly reflected in the Transition Year programme:

  1. Education for maturity with the emphasis on personal development including social awareness and increased social competence.
  2. The promotion of general, technical and academic skills with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and self-directed learning.
  3. Education through experience of adult and working life as a basis for personal development and maturity.

Each school designs its own Transition Year programme, within set guidelines, to suit the needs and interests of its students. In establishing its own distinctive programme content, the school takes into account the possibilities offered by local community interests.

Examination:

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.

The Transition Year Co-ordinator in Enniscorthy Community College is Mr. Luke Maher.
