How to prevent and remedy leaving education early: inspiring policies from Europe

Convegno europeo : strumenti e visioni per costruire la scuola di domani
What are the consequences of leaving education early? What are the factors leading to early leaving?

The conference La scuola che non disperde : strumenti e visioni per costruire la scuola di domani  [Non dispersive education: instruments and visions to build the school of tomorrow] (24 November 2016, Firenze) is organised by the Fondazione CR Firenze in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR).

The event is composed of two sessions: the session La scuola che siamo [The school we are] followed by the session La scuola che sognamo [The school we dream] in the afternoon.

Cedefop's Irene Psifidou will be the key note speaker of both sessions. She will present the latest findings of the Cedefop study on early school leaving with a focus on:

  • Why does early leaving from education matter?
  • How is early leaving understood and measured
  • What are the causes?
  • What is the role of VET?
  • What makes policies effective?
  • What is the role of local authorities?
