Further Education Graduates Rated Highly By Employers

In a recent article in the Irish Times - Graduates from apprenticeships and Post-Leaving Cert (PLC) courses are rated as highly as graduates from universities and third-level colleges, according to a major new study.

The findings are contained in a survey of more than 700 employers carried out last year by education authorities, which is due to be published soon.

The Irish Times understands that, overall, satisfaction levels with the quality of higher education graduates, at 86%, and further education and training graduates, at 84%, are virtually neck-and-neck.
