Rapport – Prevent early school leaving [closed]

This post is also available in: Italian

Rapport-logoRapport – Building Rapport to prevent early school leaving, will promote a Virtual Reflective Learning, in order to reduce early school leaving.

Context
One of the main headline targets agreed by the European Council is to reduce the share of early school leavers to less than 10%. The reasons why young people leave educational and training pathways before completing them are highly individual and they are then influenced by individual circumstances.
The reasons of the early leaving are to be found especially in the first years of upper secondary school, in particular in the end of compulsory full time education, when any school failures can be transformed into an alternative choice for training.
Students of secondary schools will be shown video interviews to early school leavers and to early school leavers who had a second chance, in order to enhance rapport and witness to prevent early school leaving.
