Surveying Student Experiences of Post-Leaving Certificate Courses

As part of an ESRI project on young people’s post-school plans and pathways we are conducting a survey of students in Post-Leaving Certificate (PLC) courses. The survey focuses on student’s course experiences, the supports they access and their plans for the future. The results will be used to make policy recommendations and help guide the development of the sector going forward.

PLC centres cover the length and breadth of the country and offer a wide range of courses and we are hoping to reflect this diversity in our study. We are therefore inviting all PLC students to take part. If you would like to help share the survey and information to all PLC students in your institution and invite them to take part, please email for more information.

This study is funded by National Council for Special Education (NCSE).
