Transition Year is a broadly based programme which includes traditional academic subjects, personal development and social developments as well as work experience.
In Boherbue Comprehensive School we offer the traditional core subjects such as Irish, English, Maths, Religion, PE, and SPHE.
We also offer a a broad range of the Leaving Certificate Optional subjects such as the foreign languages, the sciences, art, home economics,DCG, History and Geography. This allows students to acquire an understanding of the content and requirements of the various subjects at Leaving Cert Level. It also helps students to make informed choices when choosing subjects for the Leaving Certificate.
A very exciting part of the Transition Year Curriculum is the Personal Development Programme. During the school year TY students have the opportunity to experience and study a variety of outdoor, indoor and educational courses ranging from Team Building, Coaching, First Aid, Drivers Education, ECDL, Mini Company, self defence to work experience.
On completion of Transition year students are awarded certification for all courses completed and asked to complete a survey in relation to the TY Programme.
The incoming TY students are also surveyed to determine their various interests and expectations of the Transition Year Programme.
The Curriculum for TY is reviewed each year and the new curriculum is drawn up by the Principal, Deputy Principal and Transition Year Co-Ordinator based on the percieved needs of the incoming students and resources available in the school.
The Transition Year Admissions Policy is available on the school website.
