  • Hour-long exclusive classes
  • Fortnightly assessments
  • Study skills training
  • Comprehensive career guidance
  • Aptitude training

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.

A major part of the Yeats College curriculum is centred 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
  • Motivation
  • Grade targets

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.

We provide:

  • 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 available to parents through our student portal VSWare; parent-teacher meetings are also held following major examinations.
