The certificate has a range of courses that are structured round three elements: Vocational Preparation, Vocational Education and General Education.

The fundamental goal of the leaving certificate applied is to prepare participants for transition from the world of the school to that of adult and working life.

Requirements: At least 6 exam subjects of which at least 2 subjects at higher level with a result of A, B or C or at least 6 exam subjects of which at least 2 subjects at higher level with a result of H1-H4 (depending on the grading system)

Each subject is examined at one of three levels, Higher Level (informally called Honours), Ordinary Level (informally Pass), or Foundation Level. Foundation Level may only be taken in two subjects: Irish and Mathematics. All other subjects may be taken at either Ordinary or Higher Level.

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme

Participants of the leaving certificate vocational programme (LCVP) study a minimum of five subjects (at Higher, Ordinary or Foundation levels), including Irish and two subjects from specified vocational subject groupings. They are also required to take a recognised course in a Modern European language, other than Irish or English.
