TY Portfolio standard (Irish version)
Transition year allows students to become more self-directed and reflective learners.
The Transition Year Portfolio is designed specifically to support this form of learning. The TY Portfolio provides students with a framework to assess their readiness for self-directed learning, identify their strengths as learners and to set appropriate learning goals for themselves based on their strengths. They can also evaluate and reflect on each learning opportunity and all it to influence their future learning and direction. The evaluation of learning is done by the reflection on learning activities through the programme and end-of-term reviews where the learner reflects on their overall achievements during the term and measures their success against their stated and agreed learning outcomes for the year.
