Transition Year

Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme that can form the first year of a three-year senior cycle. It is designed to act as a bridge between the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate programmes.

Transition Year is optional for students in Abbey Community College.

The aims of Transition Year are:

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

In Abbey Community College, we are very proud of the rich and diverse curriculum we offer Transition Year students:
