Subject Keywords: Early school leavers
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

This report and its companion report‘ School Completers - What Next?’ are the first in a series of reports by the Department of Education and Skills (DES) which track school leavers a year after they leave school. Following the publication of the National Statistics Board report entitled ‘The Irish Statistics System: The Way Forward and Joined Up Government Needs Joined Up Data’ in December 2011, the Department of Education and Skills took the initiative to explore the potential of data matching to fill current data gaps. The tracking was carried out using data matching and was also supplemented with estimations for other destinations for which individualised data was not available.

The reports are based on a detailed analysis of the records held in the Department on students who were enrolled in DES-aided post-primary schools (on the Post-Primary Pupils Database) , focusing on those pupils who were enrolled in post-primary schools in one academic year but not enrolled in one of these schools one year later. These pupils, using a unique personal identifier (a protected identifier key based on the Personal Public Service Number (PPSN)), were tracked to other data sources that were available at the time. The cohort of pupils dealt within this report was enrolled in the 2009/2010 academic year and are termed ‘Early Leavers’.
