School Completion Programme
The School Completion Programme (SCP) is a Department of Education & Skills initiative aimed at reducing the number of young people who leave school early.
This is achieved by utilising a range of innovative and creative interventions during school time, after school and during school holidays. These interventions support and enable young people to have a more positive school experience.
What makes the School Completion Programme model unique is it ‘bottom-up’ approach, which allows Local Management Committees (representatives from school, the local community, statutory bodies and voluntary groups), to put together a plan which supports the needs of local young people at risk of early school leaving.
