Religious Education

Leaving Certificate religious education promotes tolerance and mutual understanding. It is a broad course which seeks to develop the skills needed to engage in meaningful dialogue with those of other or of no religious traditions.

This syllabus is for students in the senior cycle of post-primary education and is assessed at Higher and Ordinary levels. 

A non-examination framework is also available for those students who do not wish to take Religious Education as a Leaving Certificate examination subject.
