The LCVP course is recognised for CAO points purposes by the Universities & Institutes of Technologies. The points are allocated as follows:
Module 1 - Preparation for the World of Work
Students will research and investigate local employment opportunities, develop job seeking skills such as letter writing, CV presentation, interview techniques; gain valuable practical experience of the world of work; interview and work shadow a person in a career area that interests them.
Module 2 - Enterprise Education
Students will be involved in organising visits to local business and community enterprises; meet and interview enterprising people on site and in the classroom; plan and undertake interesting activities that will build self–confidence, creativity, initiative and develop teamwork, communication and computer skills.
LCVP Assessment: Case Studies
As well as using the case studies as examination preparation, they may also be used as a teaching resource for all parts of the curriculum.
Mind maps are an excellent visual way of preparing for both the case study and the written paper. They can be used to link to all of the Specific Learning Outcomes (SLOs).
