This year 51 young people sat their Leaving Certificate Exams and 7 young people sat their Junior Certificate Exams – all of whom had left the mainstream education system.
To date funding has been given by WAP, DSFA, DES under the BTEI and Irish Youth Foundation
Going forward this project needs to obtain mainstream funding – one option currently being explored is to link this project with the Youthreach model under the VEC.XLC Project
