The aim of this project is to help students and teachers deal with the 7 pieces of legislation required for the Leaving Certificate Business syllabus. In addition to the Leaving Certificate Business course this project could be used as a Transition year module.

This project covers the seven pieces of legislation included in the Leaving Certificate Business syllabus and can also be used as a module for Transition year Business students. The teacher section includes a set of PowerPoint lessons and the student section includes a content section, interactive and written questions for each of the pieces of legislation. Included in the written question section are sample PowerPoint answers suitable, if the project is being used as a Transition year module. The resource can be used, as seven separate sections to coincide with where that particular act occurs in the Leaving Certificate syllabus or as a complete module. The content section is divided mostly into page sized section in order to keep the attention of the students. Hyperlinks are then used to outside sites to enable the more enthusiastic students to get more details.
