Development of a new specification for Leaving Certificate Business has commenced.
Leaving Certificate business creates an awareness of the importance of business activity and develops a positive and ethical attitude towards enterprise. The learning experiences in business develop students’ critical thinking, creative and organisational skills while enhancing literacy and numeracy skills using real-life examples. Business provides students with a learning foundation for a wide range of careers in business, marketing, law, enterprise and management.
This syllabus is for students in the senior cycle of post-primary education and is assessed at Ordinary and Higher levels.
