Welcome to the new Leaving Certificate Polish specification.

The aim of Leaving Certificate Polish is to develop learners’ ability to use the target language for communicative purposes, to explore the interdependence between language and culture, to foster an appreciation of the value of languages. It also aims to develop learners’ plurilingual and pluricultural competence.

A framework approach has been used to develop this specification for the learning and teaching of a number of Leaving Certificate curricular languages including Polish. This involves a common approach across each specification including the introduction, aims, expectations for learners and assessment approaches.

The expectations for learners articulated in this specification are aligned at a similar level to the current Leaving Certificate languages of French, German, Spanish and Italian and are broadly aligned to A2/B1 levels of the CEFR.  

Assessment will be offered at both Higher and Ordinary levels. To access the online specification, click on the graphic.
