The School Completion Programme (SCP) aims to have a significant positive impact on levels of student retention in primary and second-level schools. This report draws on a survey of SCP coordinators and chairpersons, in-depth case-studies of local clusters and interviews with key stakeholders to review the programme in terms of the students targeted, the kinds of activities offered, governance and funding, and perceived effects at the school level.
