Transition Year

Transition Year (TY) is a one-year school-based programme between Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle. It is designed to act as a bridge between the two by facilitating the smooth transition from the more dependent learning of the Junior Cycle to the more independent self-directed learning required for the Senior Cycle.

The Transition Year offers students an opportunity:
• To engage in independent, self-directed learning,
• To develop general, technical and academic skills
• To mature and develop without the pressure of an examination.

In Magh Ene College, Transition Year students have the opportunity to get involved in a wide variety of activities which are of great benefit to them as they move to senior cycle.
