Aims and Objectives
The overall aim of this project is:

  • To establish a network of European VET organisations to facilitate the import and export of best practice to improve the quality of training for people at risk of / who are early school leavers

Objectives of the project are to:

  • To share best practice within the partnership by delivering 5 workshops aligned to the key issues affecting early school leaving.
  • To produce corresponding best practice manuals.
  • To enable partners to observe the application of best practice through benchmarking visits that will be facilitated within the workshop schedule
  • To ensure the involvement of key stakeholders including beneficiaries, employers, and funders in project implementation and dissemination activities.
  • To enable all partners to import and apply at least 1 innovative aspect of best practice within their organisation
  • To undertake formative and summative evaluation of the programme
  • To share learning from the programme by hosting local and European dissemination events for a wider network and by making all products freely available on the Internet

Expected outcomes:

  • Identification and monitoring of early school leaving, e.g. on analysing national, regional and local specificities of early school leaving
  • Prevention, e.g. sharing innovative practices on reducing the risk of early school leaving before problems start.
  • Intervention, e.g. transferring innovative practices on avoiding early school leaving through strategies / practices to improve the quality of education and training
  • Compensation, e.g. transferring innovative practices on helping those who have left education early with opportunities to re-engage back into learning
  • Transferring innovative activities developed by Bury College to partners on these measures will address a number of EU priorities, including:
  • Europe 2020 strategy and headline target to ‘Reduce early school leaving to less than 10% by 2020, from 14.4% in 2009’.
  • EU flagship initiative “Youth on the Move”, which aims to “raise the overall quality of all levels of training in the EU".
  • EU flagship initiative “A European Platform against Poverty and Social Exclusion”, which recognises the need to focus on breaking the cycle of disadvantage and stepping up preventative activities.
