Transition Year A transition year offers pupils a broad educational experience, which aims to promote personal, social, and vocational development. It provides a bridge to help pupils make the transition from a highly structured and exam-orientated environment to one where they will take greater responsibility for their own learning and decision-making. OVERALL AIMS: The following aims, as laid out in the Department of Education guidelines 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 inter-disciplinary and self-directed learning. (3) Education through experience of adult and working life as a basis for personal development and maturity. OBJECTIVES: Schools have the responsibility for setting and defining the objectives necessary for achievement of the overall aims. ASSESSMENT: Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Pupils should be assessed on all aspects of the transition year programme and their participation in the assessment procedure should be facilitated. WHY KEEP A DIARY: The diary will give you an opportunity to: (1) Record all the activities you participate in and skills you learn during Transition Year. (2) Assess your own capabilities. (3) Assist you in planning your future e.g. CV preparation. (4) Assist parents in assessing the value of Transition Year.

Personal Development Transition Year gives you an opportunity to mature, as a person as well as a student. Below are some personal qualities associated with maturity. Write opposite each one what it means and name the ones that you wish to develop further. At the end of the year highlight the ones that feel you have improved upon.

Assessing Yourself Transition year gives you an opportunity to look at yourself and a time to get to know yourself a little better.

Describe yourself as you believe yourself to be:

How easy did you find this exercise? Making a physical description of yourself is a relatively easy exercise, but making a description of yourself as a whole can be a lot more difficult. The following may assist you:

4 Your values and what are important to you. 4 Your ambitions, aspirations and what you want out of life. 4 Your interests and the extent to which you wish to pursue them as part of your career. 4 Your strengths and skills and your ability to exploit them to further your ambition. 4 Your weaknesses and how you can remedy them or avoid a career path that may expose them. You must be honest and realistic when making any description or assessment of yourself but you also need to take care to be accurate. What, if anything, would you like to change about yourself?

Modules A module is a short course dealing with some topic usually not covered in the normal class curriculum. It gives a student an opportunity to gain information/competence in an area that he/she may have an interest in and assist them to explore it further in later years. ASSESSMENT OF MODULES: Pupil participation in an assessment procedure can be easily facilitated in the modules. This form of assessment which involves dialogue with teachers and self-rating on various performance indicators should lead to greater self-awareness and an increased ability to manage and take responsibility for personal learning and performance. It will be useful to record all modules you have covered and analyse each one after you have completed it. List here a record of modules covered: TERM ONE Subject

The shareholders elect directors to run the company for them.

BEFORE YOU START THE COMPANY, ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: ➢ What product will you produce or service will you provide? ➢ Who will avail of the product or service? ➢ How much capital do you need to raise before commencing business? ➢ From where will you get the materials and/or equipment needed? ➢ Has space (premises) been allocated for the mini-company? ➢ Is insurance needed? ➢ How many shares will be issued? ➢ What is the criteria regarding eligibility to become a director?

YOU MUST ALSO: ➢ Make sure that you have permission from the school. ➢ Carry out some sort of market research, e.g. questionnaire. ➢ Make a product or provide a service that will not be too difficult to

manage.

➢ Fill out the necessary documents needed to set up a company. ➢ Hold a board meeting to elect directors, managers etc... ➢ Keep accounts of where money is coming from and going to On the following page are the documents that you will need to fill out before the company can begin trading.
