Research Areas: Labour Markets and Skills

The ESRI has been commissioned by SOLAS to conduct an evaluation of the PLC Programme. The study will include a comprehensive survey of school and PLC leavers, as well as a survey of PLC providers. The study will examine the profile of PLC participants, their experiences of these programmes, levels of course completion and accreditation and the educational and labour market outcomes of PLC participants relative to other groups. The structure and composition of PLC course provision, and regional distribution, will also be examined. The final report is due for completion in early 2017.
