Early School Leavers Survey

The Early School Leavers survey is the Queensland Government's statewide survey on the destinations of students who left Queensland schools prior to completing Year 12 at state, independent and Catholic schools. The survey collects information about the initial study and work destinations of young people after leaving school, and has been conducted on an annual basis since 2007. More information on the Early School Leavers survey including background, methodology and the questionnaire can be found here.
