Cedefop, in cooperation with the Lifelong Learning Platform, is organising a policy forum to explore the potential of community lifelong learning centres as one-stop shops for preventing young people at risk and early school leavers from disconnecting. The event will be hosted by the Romanian EU Presidency in its permanent representation to the EU on 29 May in Brussels.
In 2017 the Early School Leavers Unit (ESLU) published ‘A Study Focusing on Students dropping out from Post-Secondary Education in Malta in the Scholastic Year 2015-16’.
A new online toolkit for tackling early leaving from education and training was launched at Cedefop's policy learning forum on vocational education and training (VET) as a solution to leaving education early (16-17/5) in Thessaloniki.
Cedefop’s policy learning forum, on 16 and 17 May in Thessaloniki, will focus on the contribution that vocational education and training (VET) can make to reducing early leaving from education and training (ELET).
A new Cedefop study, published in two volumes, examines the contribution that vocational education and training (VET) can make to reducing early leaving from education and training (ELET).
Cedefop and the World Bank have strengthened their long collaboration over the last year and co-organised the first knowledge-exchange seminar on early leaving from education and training, which focused on lessons for Romania, in Thessaloniki on 25 May.
In 2014, the rate of early leaving from education and training in the European Union had dropped to 11%, getting closer to the Europe 2020 goal of less than 10%. This encouraging trend is partly owed to the numerous projects and initiatives across Europe which have supported young people at risk of dropping out of education over the past three decades.
