Technology for the Leaving Cert involves using the design process to work through a task or problem in order to arrive at a solution, in the form of an artefact or finished product.
The LC Tech Syllabus contains core areas:
There are two parts to the LC Technology Exam
● Student Coursework consisting of an artefact and a design folio. A brief for this coursework is issued to schools each year by the SEC (50%)
● Written Exam (50%)
Students do not need to have taken Technology at Junior Cert to qualify for this course.
It would however be an advantage if students had taken one of Tech Drawing, Wood Technology or Technology.
