New ESRI research finds that PLC courses have positive outcomes for students in terms of accessing employment and progressing to higher education. However, the study finds that PLC courses could be more responsive to changing labour market needs. The types of courses have not changed over time despite dramatic changes in the types of jobs available in Ireland.
