DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

This report was written to assist the EQUAL Youth Project in its task of designing programmes which will help early school leavers to obtain and sustain employment by improving their access to high quality services.

A total of 48 early school leavers – defined as those aged 16-24 who left school without a Leaving Certificate - were interviewed. Both quantitative and qualitative data was collected.

Background information is collated according to age, family, education and economic status. School experience is analysed in relation to experience of primary and secondary schools, reasons and regrets in relation to leaving school early. Further investigation includes dimensions of well-being and employment prospects.

COMMENTS ON THIS PUBLICATION:

The results of this study provide useful insights which will help in the design of interventions to support the progression of early school leavers towards the goal of employability and employment.
