The Northern Ireland Curriculum aims ‘to empower young people to achieve their potential and to make informed and responsible decisions throughout their lives’. Learning for Life and Work contributes directly to this by helping young people develop as individuals and as contributors to society, the economy and the environment.
The subject content is divided into three distinct compulsory areas of study:
• Local and Global Citizenship
• Personal Development
The structure of the course is as follows:
• There is a single tier of entry
• There are three written examinations that assess each of the areas of study
• There are two controlled assessment tasks
