LCVP is a Senior Cycle Programme of the Department of Education and Skills, designed to give a strong vocational dimension to the Leaving Certificate (established).

These skills are equally relevant to the needs of of those preparing for further education, seeking employment or planning to start their own business.The LCVP is funded by the Department of Education and Skills under the National Development Plan.

LCVP conference a huge success
The LCVP Conference, by all accounts a resounding success, and perhaps the most positive and successful ever, featured leading entrepreneurs in today’s world. The theme of the conference was: Ensuring continued success in the LCVP.

Jonathan Irwin’s input was probably the most memorable high points of the day.  The Conference not only had more speakers than any previous year, it also had more Teachers in attendance.  An unusually high portion of attendees, perhaps 30 to 40 percent, had never before been to an LCVP conference and are new to teaching the LCVP.

Key note speakers at the event were Jonathan Irwin from the Jack and Jill foundation, John Concannon from JFC, Mary Healy from the Chocolate Garden of Ireland.  Siobhan Ring gave an input on assessment, Siobhan O Sullivan on Idea Generation, and Michael Moroney on a new Enterprise resource.

More than 200 people attended the conference. People networked, listened to speakers and attended speed data networking on many ideas ranging from,  Demonstrations of how google docs can help collaborative planning, by Anthony Kilcoyne and Fionnuala McMorrow, updates from CareersPortal, creating an iBook from Screenway and Daniel Hyland, Trisha Mc Neill and Edel Keating, presented Portfolio items and visualisers, whilst Frank Feery and Bernadette O Neill gave inputs on work preparation and Niamh Parkinson and Rachel demonstrated creative use of PowerPoint, and much more.  The idea is to experience short inputs, informing and creating an interest in numerous ideas, resources and methodologies.

The event also saw the first presentation of the inaugural LCVP Gold medal award. This year’s award went to Sinead Gacquin from St Brigid’s Vocational School, Loughrea, Co Galway.  Sinead achieved  the highest mark in the LCVP Examination 2011. This is an outstanding result, achieving number one in Ireland in both the portfolio and written paper as determined by the State Examination Commission.  In excess of sixteen thousand students would have taken LCVP in 2011. Sinead’s teacher Dell  Connolly, Principal, Sean Connolly and family attended the presentation. Sinead is now studying Accountancy with Law at University of Limerick.

A sincere, Thank you to all who helped on the day, all the PDST, including Sage @schools and Moneysense.
