TIME TO GET BACK ON TRACK!
The European Union has high levels of school drop-outs not only associated with learning difficulties but also are closely related to social, motivational, and even family factors that surpass a merely educational area. This situation occurs more frequently at the initial stages of vocational training; because this level of education often picks up a type of student that comes from failed studies, and other burdens ( low motivation, drug consumption, violence, bullying …). Immigration and a lack of inclusive actions are also factors that should be taken into account.
In Spain, for example, early school drop-outs that derive from a foreign background go up to an astonishing 35%. The data is equally astonishing in the case of local students, rising up to 15.3%.
Invet is led by Maristak Durango and a joint force of organizations experienced in the work with young disadvantaged students in the VET system. Our partnership aims to provide a pack of resources:
- References on successful initiatives developed at education centers to fight against disruptive behavior. (video testimonies).
- Guidelines and resources to implement in VET centers.
