Bespoke Transition Year Programme

We Align With The DEP TY Objectives!

We Zoom to You!

 

The overall aim with our bespoke Transition Year Programmes is to align with the Department of Educations – TY Mission and Objectives. We also want to make your student’s TY experience topical and engaging! Together We Get Better!

Overall Aims
The following aims are interrelated and interdependent and should be strongly reflected in every Transition Year programme:

1. Education for maturity with the emphasis on personal development including social awareness and increased social competence.
2. The promotion of general, technical and academic skills with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and self-directed learning.
3. Education through experience of adult and working life as a basis for personal development and maturity.

These bespoke courses greatly enhance problem-solving, interpersonal and self-directional skills helping students succeed in their future careers. They also aim to increase awareness and encourage interest in the field of Computer Science and Business. These courses give an overview of the subject areas to enhance students awareness and therefore aid their college course selection. Each of these courses is bespoke they can be tailored to your school’s requirements with respect to length and course depth.
