Leaving Certificate Business – Updates to Legisation

Leaving Certificate Business​

A reminder to all Leaving Certificate Business teachers about the updated syllabus guidelines regarding legislation in the Business syllabus, which was published by the NCCA in 2018.  Please note the following:

  • Circulars will no longer be issued in relation to relevant changes in legislation
  • It is the responsibility of the Business teacher to ensure that they have knowledge of the most recent developments
  • From 2020 onwards, students will be required to reference the current legislation and institutions in their responses
  • Where the relevant legislation has changed during the two years immediately prior to the examination, questions will be framed in such a way that students can engage with them on the basis of the older or newer legislation position without penalty.
