Leaving Certificate

The Leaving Certificate (referred to as Leaving Certificate Established) is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering some specialisation towards a particular career option.

Coláiste Iascaigh offers students a varied curriculum and endeavours to facilitate students subject choices when developing the timetable for senior cycle. To support students through their leaving cert journey, Coláiste Iascaigh incorporates a number of wellbeing programmes into the senior cycle curriculum. These include computer class, physical education, career guidance and SPHE.
