Certification at senior cycle

Students continuing their L1LPs at senior cycle will begin a new senior L1LPs portfolio to be presented at the end of their schooling. This portfolio will evidence new learning that builds on the student’s prior learning at junior cycle. The student may focus on PLUs or short courses not engaged with at junior cycle, or work on PLUs where progress was achieved at junior cycle. The nature of certification of the senior L1LPs will be considered as part of the senior cycle review. The learning recognised in this certification will be broadly aligned with Level 1 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
