ESRI Report, 2011

This study examines the experiences of young people as they make the transition from the junior cycle (lower secondary) to senior cycle (upper secondary) education. This report provides the insights for policy development concerning senior cycle education. Drawing on survey and interview data from Transition Year and fifth year students in twelve case-study schools, this study sets out to address this gap in knowledge by exploring the choices students make over the transition as well as their learning experiences and relations with their teachers and peers.
