Under Action 88 of the DEIS Plan my Department has undertaken a review of out-of-school education provision. This review was carried out by a Working Group chaired by my Department and comprised of representatives from stakeholders including the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Tusla, Solas, Education and Training Boards Ireland and the National Educational Psychological Service.

This review has been informed through the use of questionnaires, submissions from stakeholders and a public consultation process, including consultation with students. 

My Department is committed to a sustainable framework for out of school provision. I expect to soon be in a position to publish the report of the review and it is envisaged that the report will inform future policy in this area
