Blended Learning programme

Bruce College is a school of academic excellence for 5th, 6th years and Repeat Leaving Cert. students.

We have a proven track record for over 25 years.

We cater for students who want to achieve their academic potential.

Now we are also offering an alternative full time Blended Learning programme to students by providing a combination of online teaching and classroom based learning.

Bruce College consists of a fifth year, sixth year and repeat Leaving Cert. programme. Students can join our school in any of these years. A broad subject choice is provided. In each academic year regular assessment and house exams along with regular parental contact are an essential part of what we offer.

What is it?

The Blended Learning Programme is available to students who want to do a full time Leaving Certification course. It is not an option to those who just want to do one subject outside of their own school.

All classes in the College given by our teachers will be recorded.

Who is Blended Learning For?

Blended learning is a full time programme for students that live further away from the school.

They can now avail of less crowded peak time traffic and reduced travel times. It offers flexibility to students for example who have sporting commitments. They can now have more control over their schedules.

How does it work?

Your schedule does not always fit the school schedule well now it can. You can’t make the first class in the morning? No problem come in later and you can access the class online while in supervised study or access it at home.

You need to skip last class of the day so you can make a sports commitment, you can catch up with the class later as it will be available to you online.

Some parts of the course work, depending on the subjects must be completed in house as required by the department in terms of project work and practical assignments. In certain subjects that cannot be done virtually, in this case the student is obliged to be in school under teacher supervision.

As part of the programme the school will also offer online recorded tutorials in specific subjects as part of the support.

All notes are available electronically and automatically synchronised. No more organisational Problems.
