VET toolkit for tackling early leaving
What is the VET toolkit for tackling early leaving?
A Europe-wide toolkit inspired by successful VET practices in helping young people to attain at least an upper secondary qualification.
It provides practical guidance, tips, good practices and tools drawn from VET to feed into activities and policies aiming at:
- helping young people at risk of becoming early leavers to remain in education and training and qualify;
- helping early leavers to reintegrate into education or training and the labour market.
Who can benefit from the toolkit?
Policy-makers and practitioners, working in a ministry, VET school, company, guidance centre, public employment service, social service, or youth organisation, looking for ways to:
- identify early the signs of disengagement and prevent early leaving;
- support learners at risk of dropping out;
- improve attendance or reduce dropout;
- monitor early leavers systematically to reach out to them in time;
- motivate and re-engage early leavers, bringing them back to education and training;
- advance knowledge on what makes a success in tackling leaving education early.
Why use the VET toolkit?
The toolkit aims to provide guidance and tools in three action areas:
- identify and monitor early leavers and learners at risk of leaving education early;
- intervene to retain them in, or bring them back to, education or training;
- evaluate related measures undertaken within a country, region or institution.
