School Completion Programme

The School Completion Programme (SCP), in the Child and Family Agency , Dept of Children and Youth Affairs  aims to have a significant positive impact on levels of pupil attendance, retention and participation in primary and post-primary schools and has been operating in St. Nicholas Monastery since 2007.

The main aims of the School Completion Programme are:
• To retain young people in the formal education system to completion of the Senior Cycle, or equivalent.
• To improve quality of participation and educational attainment of targeted children and young people in the educational process.
• To bring together all local stakeholders (home, school, youth, community, statutory and voluntary) to tackle early school leaving.
• To offer positive supports in primary and post-primary schools towards the prevention of educational disadvantage.
• To encourage young people who have left mainstream education to return to school.
• To influence in a positive way policies relating to the prevention of early school leaving in the education system
