Abstract: The education programme of BRAC not only provides quality basic education to its learners it also put emphasis on their enrolment in formal schools for further education. The Research and Evaluation Division of BRAC started a tracer study on the graduates of BRAC non-formal schools in 1995. This article, based on the data generated from the tracer study, explores the continuation of education of the graduates of BRAC non-formal schools in formal schools. Three types of schools were considered. These are BRAC operated Non-Formal Primary Education (NFPE) and Basic Education for Older Children (BEOC), and NFPE under Education Support Programme (ESP).
