Making an Effective Transition from Primary to Second-Level


An interactive seminar for teachers and parents of 6th class pupils/ In-coming First Year Students

Transitioning to second-level is a key life change – how 6th class pupils adapt to their new second-level school matters and has lasting consequences. The evidence points to the need for the development of personal characteristics as a crucial preparation for young adolescents to be able to cope with change at an organisational, learning and personal development level. The objective of this important seminar is to highlight these changes and to facilitate a conversation which will enable teachers and parents to support and develop resilient young people and give them tools to be ready to cope with change as they transition from primary to second-level. Changes will be discussed for various types of pupils including the worrier, the child with learning difficulties and the highly able/ gifted child.

Expected Outcomes
By the end of the course participants will:

  1. Be aware of the need to prepare 6th class pupils for the transition to 2nd level and the evidence supporting the need for preparation, with the support of Irish pupil’s video testimonies
  2. Identify, recognize and understand key changes the child will experience
  3. Have explored strategies to help the child cope with change
  4. Be aware of useful resources to support the child through this key life change
