XLC Project


XLc was started by Nuala & Eoin Jackson in Oct. 1998, and is still going strong. The ever-increasing numbers of students seeking our help, and the impressive Leaving and Junior Cert results, stand as a testament to our philosophies and pedagogy.

The XLc Project was founded 15 years ago by school teacher Nuala Jackson and her son Eoin Jackson.  It began in the top room of Eoin's flat.  That first year there were 7 students, all young people who had fallen between the ever increasing cracks in the formal school system.  Since then the XLc Project has grown from strength to strength.  To date the project has helped hundreds of students access the Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate exams.  Many of these students would otherwise have fallen off the educational radar. Most of the people who work in the project are volunteers.  With enough funding the project could help even more of the early school leavers who are turning up in droves looking for help.
