EARLY SCHOOL LEAVING
This course is eligible for the Erasmus+ funding programme
The participants will improve their knowledge in the field of early school leaving, receive theoretical background, and enable sharing of best practices and get hands on experience. Also they will be taught on the special needs of children and how to identify children at risk of exclusion?
Target Group – Teachers of primary and secondary educational institutions as well as of vocational training institutions.
Objectives – Early school leaving is linked to unemployment, social exclusion, and poverty. There are many reasons why some young people give up education and training prematurely: personal or family problems, learning difficulties, or a fragile socio-economic situation. Since there is not a single reason for early school leaving, we believe that the way the education system is set up plays a huge role. Also the early school leavers were somehow incapable of completing mainstream education.
Methodology – During the training programme, the participants will get hands-on experience with methodologies, approaches and forms of assessment which should support pupils with different needs and whose use in education should prevent early school leaving. They will also develop their skills in communication with difficult pupils and parents and practice their skills in preventing and handling conflicts.
