Are you aged between 16 and 19 and no longer in school?

Have you thought about doing something positive with your life?


Why not join us here in Limerick Youth Service on the Leaving Cert Applied programme? Here are some reasons why you might be interested:

  • LYS has been running the LCA programme since 1998
  • Past pupils have gone on to further education, PLC courses, Institutes of Technology and University
  • Others have used LCA to explore different work experiences and find employment in areas like Childcare, Retail, Barbers, Hairdressing, Sports and Leisure, Self Employment and Car Mechanics to name but a few
  • 3 of our past pupils have been received awards for their high scores in LCA (they came in the top 6 in the country!)


The LCA is a two year  full time programme. Class sizes are small, no more than 14 students normally. Attendance and participation are crucial to getting good results. Your progress is continuously assessed, through project work, classwork and work experience.
