Adult, Vocational and Community-based Learning

Vocational training counteracts and helps prevent early leaving from education and training

Vocational education and training (VET) can help attract young people with different abilities and learning backgrounds to education. It also plays a decisive role in retaining them in the education system or reintegrating them after a drop-out experience.

Recent datasets contain a wealth of qualitative information on young school leavers’ and returners’ trajectories and their individual motives: What type of education/training programme have they left, and why? How many of them return to education? How many choose VET pathways? And how many graduate eventually?
