The GAA/PDST Future Leaders Transition Year Programme is being rolled out in over 260 Post Primary Schools as of September 2018. The cross-curricular programme comprising of 8 Modules in subjects as diverse as Coaching, Sports Journalism and Event Management, is designed to provide a learning experience based on the practical application of the skills from each module, by empowering every student to play an active role in the organisation of a Gaelic Games opportunity in their School or Community. As such it aims to bring the GAA value of ‘Inclusion’ to life in every Post Primary School undertaking the programme. We want these students to have a lifelong involvement in the Association as coaches, referees, administrators and players. The programme will develop life skills in the students, supporting them to be more physically active, to be more focused and aware, to be better communicators and team workers and to have a sense of belonging in their community and their place. There are benefits to the pupil, the school, to local clubs and communities, and to the country as a whole.
