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.
