Once a learner at risk of early leaving is identified, what can be done to help him or her stay in education and training? And what can be done to re-engage young people who have already left the system?
There are no one-size-fits-all solutions. The ultimate decision on which measure is adequate for a certain learner, should be taken on a case-by-case basis following an analysis of the learner’s needs.
To help you find the best solutions, we invite you to reflect on:
- The protective factors against early leaving. We propose intervention approaches that help to strengthen each protective factor.
- The profiles of early leavers and learners at risk of early leaving. We propose intervention approaches that can help early leavers and learners at risk of early leaving that take into account their characteristics and their ‘distance’ from education and training.
