Tackling Early Leaving from Education and Training – No single blueprint

Policies and measures to tackle early leaving from education and training are more likely to succeed if they acknowledge the different factors that can influence it and are tailored to the specific profiles of young people at risk of leaving education and training prematurely.

There is no single blueprint of an effective intervention to tackle ELET: the detail of successful interventions differs by target group and setting. The study analysed 44 successful measures to tackle early leaving through VET and derived from these lessons for policy design, implementation and evaluation.

With some profiles of young people at risk of early leaving, small changes can make a big difference in retaining them in education and training.

The profiles of young people who do not continue in education and training vary. While some experience difficult personal situations that lead them to quitting education early, others are similar to those who eventually persist in education.

The study identified six profiles of early leavers and learners at risk of early leaving. These profiles illustrate how different risk factors can interact and lead to early leaving.
