Senior Programme – Leaving Certificate

The Senior Programme at Tyndall College Carlow is a two-year programme. Students have the opportunity to choose two routes – the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) or the Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA). 

We offer a wide range of subjects at both Higher and Ordinary levels in order that all students can maximise their potential to achieve.



This is a two-year Leaving Certificate available to students who wish to follow a practical Leaving Certificate Programme with a  vocational focus.  It places particular emphasis on preparation for the world of work and life-long learning.  Work experience is a significant component of the programme.

Advice and Support

We meet with every student to ensure that their choice of programme, including core and optional subjects meets their potential and their own specific needs, interests and ambitions. We will advise students and their parents/guardians on the best combination of subjects, particularly to ensure maximum choice when it comes to progression to work, or further and higher education. We will also help understand any individual learning needs/exemptions etc. that might influence individual programmes. The specific programme undertaken is dependent on student enrolment, resources and needs.
