One Year Leaving Certificate Course
Yeats College offers an intensive one year programme for first time and repeat Leaving Certificate students. A comprehensive range of subjects are offered to the students from which they can select their choice of subject without timetable restrictions. This enables students to choose subjects most suited to their individual abilities. At Yeats College all subjects are completed within a one year cycle thus allowing students to study subjects for the first time.
A major part of the Yeats College curriculum is centered on study skills. A comprehension of the material does not always translate to examination performance if the student is unable to structure and regulate their revision effectively.
Study skills provided include:
- Stress management
- Concentration and listening skills
- Revision and memory aids
- Effective note taking
Our study skills seminars involve developing the techniques and attitude necessary to cope with the rigorous workload of the Leaving Certificate exams.
At Yeats College, we have an integrated teaching model whereby teachers follow a common, structured revision schedule which aids students’ retention and reinforcement of key concepts.
- Regular assessment tests
- Revision worksheets
- Detailed revision schedules
- Follow-up action
Continual assessment is a major feature of life at Yeats College. Under continual assessment students take part in:
Mock Leaving Certificate examinations in October and at Christmas and Easter
Bi-monthly assessments in every subject
The results of all academic assessments are posted to parents on a regular basis; parent-teacher meetings are also held following major examinations.
A major part of the Yeats College curriculum is centered on study skills. Our teachers impart strategies and skills that will help the student understand, remember and recall the necessary detail required at examination time.
