This research report is based on interviews with 29 of the 401 young people in the larger Competent Learners @ 20 report. That study
found that many young people have a relatively smooth transition from school to tertiary education. This report focuses on those who experienced a more problematic transition. Some of the students had left school early, while other had experienced unemployment or had become mothers.
