Transition Year (TY)

05-September-17

The Transition Year provides an opportunity for students to experience a wide range of educational inputs, life skills and work experience at a remove from the examination focus.

Transition year is not examined, but rather is assessed, and is intended to be a broad educational experience which assists in the transition from the school environment by encouraging creativity and responsibility for ones self.

Homework is an important part of the Transition Year. In addition to traditional styles of homework, students are expected to do projects, assignments, interviews and research. Transition Year homework may involve hours spent after school arranging work experience, or visiting the elderly as a component of work in the community.

The main objective of the Transition Year is to 'promote the personal, social, educational and vocational development of pupils and to prepare them for their role as autonomous, participative and responsible members of society.’
