National Education System Description:

 https://www.education.ie/en/The-Education-System/

National Education System - Provisions regarding language learning:
 All pupils at primary level (ISCED 0 and 1 - ages 4.5 -12.5 typically) are taught the first official language, Irish. The great majority of students at ISCED 2 and 3 also study Irish. Irish is a second language to the vast majority of pupils but is not considered a foreign language. At lower and upper secondary (ISCED 2 and 3), a modern language is not a compulsory element of either the required curriculum or of the State examinations. It is however, a matriculation requirement of some third level institutions and, de facto, students choose to study modern languages to satisfy such requirements.

Main changes over time
Type of data Detailed variables concerned Reference year(s) Changes in the educational system Changes in the coverage Changes in the methodology Other changes
Data on entrants at ISCED 5   2017 onwards There is an increase in ISCED 5 from 2015/16 to 2016/17 due to an increase in Part Time students under this category. This increase is mainly due to an increased number of courses being offered at several institutes.      
Data on enrolments at ISCED 0 Data on enrolments at ISCED 0 2017 onwards     Previously, most of the data in this category was reported at age as at 1st April. However, this caused some issues when data is compared to the population by a single year of age. Data for 2017 onwards is reported using the reference date for age as at 1st January, in order to match with population age estimates, which are reported at age as at 1st January. As a result, some children may appear to be too young to enrol but they may enrol into ECCE scheme in April 2017 and being 3y.o. at that time, but in January 2017 they were much younger. So when age data is shifted, kids might look too young for ECCE scheme.  
Data on enrolments at ISCED 0 Data on enrolments at ISCED 0 2011 onwards Reported in the UOE returns from UOE 2011 onwards only. The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Scheme, introduced in 2010 provides a free year of early childhood care and education for children of pre-school age. In general, children are eligible for the ECCE scheme if they are aged over 3 years 2 months and less than 5 years 6 months on 1 September of the year that they will be starting. The upper age limit can be extended in some cases. Prior to the introduction of the ECCE data was unavailable on the number of children enrolled in ISCED 0 education and the data was for the most part missing. The introduction of the ECCE scheme brought the introduction of data capture.    
New Entrants at ISCED 3 in private educational institutions Data on new entrants at ISCED 3 in private educational institutions 2009 onwards   Coverage expanded to include new entrants in private educational institutions.    
New Entrants at ISCED 5A and 5B - part time students Data on new entrants at ISCED 5A and 5B for part time students 2008 onwards   Coverage expanded to include data on new entrants to part time courses at ISCED level 5A and 5B    

Graduates at ISCED 3 and ISCED 4;

 

 

Data on graduates at ISCED 3 and ISCED 4,

 

2005 onwards

 

 

  Because of the availability of better data, we included data on graduates from training programmes at ISCED level 3C (programmes that are of shorter duration than typical 3A programmes) and level 4. Last year only about one third of these graduates were included and many were included in level 4 when they should have been level 3.    

Graduates at ISCED 5-8

 ISCED5-8  2014 onwards    The data availability has been improved and therefore we included QQI data on graduates at this levels to already available HEA data    
Expenditure Expenditure on welfare servies for students 2010 onwards   For the first time in 2010, an item of expenditure on payments made to unemployed people who return to education is included, this scheme is known in Ireland as the "Back to Education Initiative". The total expenditure across all levels is in the region of €180m    
Expenditure Expenditure on ISCED 0 institutions 2009 onwards   For the first time we have included some additional coverage of the private sector at ISCED 0. This covers some public funding in private pre-primary institutions. As a result for the first time we can have a meaningful figure for expendiure per pupil at ISCED 0.    
Expenditure Expenditure distribution between ISCED levels 1-4 2009 onwards     As a result of receiving financial data which for the first time was allocated to levels of education (as opposed to estimating the allocations at each level), we were able to arrive at a more accurate distribution of expenditure at ISCED levels 1-4

8.3. Coherence - cross domain

The extent to which statistics are reconcilable with those obtained through other data sources or statistical domains.

 

Name of the national publication Coherence issues
Annual Statistical Report Data on enrolments (ISCED 1, 2, 3, 5 & 6) and new entrants (ISCED 5 & 6( are published annually. Data are coherent with data supplied as part of the UOE data collection.
Higher Education Authority: Key facts and figures Data on enrolment and new entrants at ISCED 5 and 6 in funded institutions are published. The classification of funded institutions differs slightly to that of the UOE returns so the data are not exactly comparable as they refer to different subsets of institutions.
Unit Cost national data The figures for indicator B1 are not comparable with the Department of Education and Skills national estimates of expenditure per pupil at first second and third level, as the national figures include public spending by the Department of Education and Skills only.
8.4. Coherence - sub annual and annual statistics

Not available.

8.5. Coherence - National Accounts

The extent to which statistics are reconcilable with National Accounts.

 

Calculation method Scope of education
  Up until mid-2012, some classes of institutions were classified differently between private and public in national accounts and UOE. For example, voluntary secondary schools were classified as public in UOE and private in National Acccounts. Some harmonisation has recently taken place on the classifications, discussions are continuing at national level.
