Abstract

This report examines educational transitions for a national cohort of young people over a five-year period and in doing so attempts to understand who is and is not progressing, when the major bottlenecks appear, and where potential barriers to entering the post-school system are. Our aim is to provide a detailed examination of educational pathways and show a more complete picture of various transitions through the post-compulsory schooling phase (Grade 10 to 12), leading to a more accurate reflection of grade repetition and the sticking points throughout this phase.
