DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

This report presents the findings of the measure study of Measure 11B: Early School Leavers - Youthreach and Travellers. The aim of this measure is “To provide second-chance education for early school leavers and Travellers with minimal or no educational qualifications”. It is implemented by the Department of Education and Science (DES) in conjunction with local Vocational Education Committees (VECs). Measure 11B is one of a number of measures in the EHRDOP that explicitly target particular groups for inclusion within its provisions, in this case members of the Traveller community, who have minimal or no educational qualifications.

The document is a study of Measure 11B that explores:
• The composition of participants in Youthreach and STTCs in terms of the equality grounds of membership of the Traveller Community, disability, and membership of minority ethnic groups
• The strengths and weaknesses of Measure 11B in terms of combating educational disadvantage, promoting equality of educational outcomes, and access to lifelong learning.
• The contemporary relevance of recasting the main aim of the measure in the area of supporting progression within the further education and training and higher education systems

It concludes with a series of observations regarding the monitoring of and reporting on Measure 11B and identifies the need for a tracking system to address the current data gaps.
