Transition Year

The Transition Year Programme is a unique one year programme that promotes the personal, social, vocational and educational development of students and prepares them for their role as autonomous, participative and responsible members of society. TY provides a bridge to enable students to make the transition from the more dependent type of learning associated with Junior Cycle to the more independent learning environment associated with Senior Cycle. It encourages the development of a wide range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem solving skills. 

The Transition Year Programme is offered on an optional basis in St Joseph’s and places are offered based on the satisfactory completion of an application form and an interview with the TY Co-ordinator, Ms O’Sullivan.

An overview of the subjects offered in Transition Year are outlined in the table below. Further information about activities undertaken by our TY classes can be found in our TY Twitter page.
