Studied Leaving Cert Applied strenuously last year for a module. Came to the conclusion that this is an exceptionally worthwhile course for those who would not be able to flourish in the traditional Leaving Certificate. LCA is a vibrant course which meets the needs and interests of students. The LCA programme is designed to help pupils discover things to do with their hands mouth etc. In the LCA programme it complements all types of learners like visual or auditory learners whereas the Leaving Certificate only really caters for logic or linguistic learners.
This is an excellent video which goes into great depth about the advantages that the LCA programme has offer to students.
Well worth a watch!!
