Stakeholder Event: School Engagement and Youth Transitions. Findings of the RESL.eu project
The project Reducing Early School Leaving in Europe (RESL.eu) sought to investigate the patterns of and underlining reasons behind young people’s disengagement from education and leaving school without qualifications. In so doing, we have undertaken 5 years of intensive research with young people, schools, colleges, parents, employers, local authorities, NGOs, national and international policy makers. We have identified a range of complex challenges facing young people today, but also the diverse array of intervention measures put in place to support them.
We are now ready to present our key findings and launching a series of Policy Briefings:
(1) School Disengagement
(2) Apprenticeships: an alternative type of learning.
Organised by the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC), this half-day event will bring together stakeholders, policy makers and researchers working on education and school-to-work transitions at a European, national and local level.
Further information will follow soon.
The event is free to attend but places must be booked in advance for catering purposes.
