Leaving Cert Applied Class 2019 with their teachers & instructors at Limerick Youth Service.
Top Marks for Limerick Youth Service LCA Students
There were joyous and emotional scenes at Limerick Youth Service (LYS) this past week as students received their Leaving Cert Applied (LCA) results. The students, who studied the two year Limerick Youth Service LCA programme at LYS’ Community Training Centre, saw their hard work rewarded with excellent results.
The Limerick Youth Service LCA programme meets the needs of students who prefer the practical and continuous assessment approach in contrast to that of the “mainstream” Leaving Cert. Noreen Murphy, LCA Coordinator said “We are very happy with the results and they reflect the commitment and effort that the students put into the programme. They should be very proud of their achievements and we wish them all the best in the next step of their lives”.
“It is continually assessed with a strong emphasis on recognising the talents of all students, giving them opportunities through the subjects and modules to develop personal responsibility and self-esteem” added Noreen. Like the Leaving Cert, students have to complete final exams in June but they can approach this feeling confidence with at least 2/3 of their work done beforehand, explained the coordinator.
LYS would like to congratulate the LCA Class of 2019: Conor Devereux, Takashi Enokibara, Dylan Hehir, Sarah Lee Quinn, Rebecca O’Grady, Lee McAllister, Tiffany McAllister, Niamh McCarthy, Brendan Nash and Stephanie Power. They all will now progress to further education and/or employment and LYS wishes them the very best of luck with their future endeavours.
LYS wishes to thank the Limerick & Clare Education & Training Board for their support of the LCA programme which is delivered at LYS’ Community Training Centre, Lr. Glentworth St, Limerick City.
