The study seeks to develop a critical understanding of the causes of attrition among Further Education (FE) students in Ireland. The causes of non-persistence, which are outside of the control of FE Colleges and the areas of influence that reside within the remit of the College are explored. The issues of both academic and social integration, which is expounded by the leading theorists on student attrition, are considered. Recommendations and strategies, which could be implemented at institutional level to raise levels of persistence, are explored.
