The Business subjects are a core part of the curriculum in St.Vincent’s. The department comprises a dedicated team of experienced and enthusiastic teachers. At Junior Certificate level we offer Business Studies and at Leaving Certificate level we offer Business, Accounting and Economics . All students have access to both higher and ordinary level.
In Transition Year, we place a strong emphasis on Enterprise. Students are afforded the opportunity to set up and run their own mini company. They can also enter the Regional and National ﬁnals of the Student Enterprise Awards. Transition Year students are also central to the organisation and production of our hugely successful Fashionably Talented Show .
Guest speakers are a feature of Leaving Certiﬁcate Business in order to provide students with an insight into the cut and thrust of the business world.
As part of their vocational preparation we invite our LCA students to set up and run their own company. This is a welcome opportunity for the girls to explore their business skills and aptitudes.
