WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE TRANSITION YEAR PROGRAMME
The Transition Year Programme is a unique one year programme that promotes the personal, social, vocational and educational development of students and prepares them for their role as autonomous, participative and responsible members of society (Transition Year Guidelines, 1994, Department of Education). TY provides a bridge to enable students to make the transition from the more dependent type of learning associated with Junior Cycle to the more independent learning environment associated with Senior Cycle. It encourages the development of a wide range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.
The latest statistics for TY Students participanting in Transition Year are 40,451 in 622 schools.

Cycle Against Suicide
Cycle Against Suicide is an initiative started by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen, as a result of his appearance on RTE's The Secret Millionaire programme. The main objective of the Cycle is to raise awareness of the considerable help and supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide.
The Cycle Against Suicide community is determined to let people in every corner of the island of Ireland know that; it's OK not to feel OK and it's absoluetly OK to ask for help. Together, shoulder to shoulder, we can break the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland.
Iveagh Scholars Programme
The Iveagh Scholars programme is a way for secondary-studens to share their views on Ireland's role in the world, and to get involved in the discussion about how the Deparment of Foreign Affairs and Trade promotes abroad the values, interests and economic well-being of Ireland and its people. It is aimed at Transition Year students in Ireland and Year 12 students in Northern Ireland.

The 121digital programme facilitates approx 500 TY students annually to experience the power of enabling local adults with digital skills. This, in turn, empowers the TY students who volunteer for the programme. It is their first experience of teaching and it matures them on several levels.
