TY Resource Pack

Proudly Made in Africa, our Transition Year Educational Unit, has been developed in collaboration with teachers and in accordance with the NCCA Guidelines for writing transition units. This novel unit is listed by the NCCA as an exemplar TU for use in schools, and is applicable in study areas ranging from business, CSPE, religion and geography.

This TU teaches students about Ireland’s relationship with particular African countries – Ethiopia, Lesotho, Tanzania, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia. Learners find out more about these countries, and about how they are linked to Ireland by trade. They consider perspectives of residents of these countries and examine how individuals have/can overcome barriers to forming successful businesses.

In examining the role of business in development, business-oriented students explore the options available in seeking ways to combat poverty through trade.
