Please find attached for your information a recent launched Report by the ESRI, this report highlights the challenges faced by young people after post-primary education.
The ‘Leaving School in Ireland’ study is the first of its kind to link experiences in second-level education with later outcomes.
A new report being launched by the ESRI provides new insights into the experiences of young people transitioning into further/higher education and the labour market. Leaving School in Ireland: A Longitudinal Study of Post-School Transitions follows the pathways taken by over 750 students as they make the leap from second-level school into the next phase of their lives.
This study, which draws on the experience of many of these students since they entered post-primary education through the Post-Primary Longitudinal Study (2001-2011), explores the long-term effects of school experiences.

I am writing to you from the Irish Dental Health Foundation in relation to a Teen Dental Health Campaign we are running.
Our campaign is aimed at teenagers and we hope to get them to think about their oral health and how much confidence can be gained from a nice smile. With this in mind we are running a competition where we offer €50 One for All Voucher for the best photo of an individual or group showing their best smiles.
I am looking for ways to reach this age group and was hoping we could link in with you. I understand from your website that your programme includes health issues so perhaps we could use the campaign as a way to approach the subject of good oral health. I have some oral health postcards specifically aimed at teenagers that I would be happy to send you for distribution.
Below are links to our website and Facebook page for further details on our competition. I would be very grateful if you could share the information with your members.
