Not only does the transition year help you learn new skills and develop your independent approach to learning, it also provides you with an extra year to think carefully about which leaving cert subjects you want to pursue. Gaining an insight into different fields of study on open days and work placements may influence your decision as you may now have a stronger sense of what subjects and career areas you are interested in. This will make your choice of leaving cert subjects much easier!
