As a parent, one who had never done Transition Year in school, I found Transition Year a bit confusing for a while. What did it involve? What kind of work placements did young people do? What was a social placement? What kind of talks would young people be given? How did the academic side of things work? What subjects could students do? What did Gaisce mean? Why did students go on particular trips?
When I went looking for information, it was very wide and varied. Also, different schools took different approaches. As a result, I found it hard to really grasp everything. During my teenager’s recent TY year, however, I quickly learnt about various aspects. Still, as there is so much to learn, I feel like I am still learning!
I have written this book as a basic, straightforward guide, mainly aimed at parents and perhaps some TY students. Teachers may also find it of interest. It is not a comprehensive guide, but I am hoping to add to it over the years.
Transition Year is, to my mind, potentially a wonderfully exciting and interesting year, albeit a challenging one, in Irish schools. I wish I could have done it myself. The closest I can get to doing Transition Year myself is to write about it!
