The School Completion Programme (SCP) was set up as part of Department of Education and Skills (DES) DEIS Strategy which is: Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools, and is now under the remit of TUSLA.
Its aim is to increase the numbers of young people staying in primary and second level education and in doing so improve the numbers of pupils who successfully complete the Senior Cycle, or it’s equivalent.
SCP work focuses on targeting and providing supports to young people identified to be most at risk of early school leaving and includes:
Identifying and supporting children at risk of not reaching their potential in the educational system because of poor attendance, participation and retention via initiatives such as breakfast clubs; homework clubs; afterschool supports; mentoring programmes. Ensuring that schools have in place the appropriate procedures to monitor, identify and respond to attendance, participation and retention issue.
