“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison

Transition Year Business gives students a taste of what is to come in Senior Cycle business subjects – Business, Economics and Accounting. It also allows students to showcase their skills and creativity in the Mini-Company module, a course that allows students to create a real business and try to make real profits.

Whether or not students progress to study any of these courses for the Leaving Certificate, Transition Year Business will equip students with important knowledge they will need when they leave school - skills such as understanding their wage slip, knowing what insurance they need, and recognising how their consumer choices affect everything around them.
