Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP)

The Junior Certificate School Programme aims to make the Junior Certificate more accessible to students who may experience difficulty in school. It attempts to help young people experience success and develop a positive self-image by providing a curriculum and assessment framework suitable to their needs. Students get an opportunity to become more involved in their own learning and receive regular feedback on their progress. When the students sit their Junior Certificate exam, they get a certificate from the Department of Education and Skills and a profile listing all they have achieved while on the Programme.

Home School Community Liaison:

A teacher from the staff works full-time to support parents in helping their children to settle in to and benefit from the school system and to prevent early school leaving. The scheme sonsists of a partnership and collaboration of the complimentary skills of parents and teachers. Home visitation is a crucial element in establishing bonds of trust with families. In order to discuss any concerns parents might have, the Home School Community Liaison co-ordinator (Mr. John Murphy) is available throughout the day on 053-9236544 or 053 92 34185 (ext. 4).

The Student Council in Enniscorthy Vocational College is a representative structure for students. Through the work of the council, students can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. There are 11 members on the college’s Student Council: a male and female representative from each year group plus a representative for International Students.

The Student Council in EVC has a number of different functions including:
• Talking to the principal and board of management about issues of concern to students.
• Communicating and co-operating with school staff.
• Working with the parents’ council in school.
• Co-operating with management and staff on the development of school rules and regulations.

• Having a say in school policies e.g. anti-bullying policy, code of discipline, etc.

Student Council meetings in EVC are held regularly throughout the year and give students an opportunity  to discuss matters of interest.
