Measures Taken in the Member States of the European Union To Assist Young People Who Have Left the Education System without Qualifications.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
European Union Member States gather information on students who drop out without qualification so that they may know how to help this population. This report presents the broad range of measures, arrangements, and systems that exist for supervising, monitoring, training, and providing for dropouts. The text defines the categories used for the description and provides information on the measures, including names of the measures, types of measures, aims of the measures, certification, context, target group, age, and duration, all of which is followed by an analysis of the various measures offered. Some of the issues and debates that surround this population are discussed and include such questions as how is a specific measure for young people without qualifications defined?; what are the preventive or second-chance measures taken?; and what are the social and occupational integration or education/training measures? The last section, the national descriptions, provides 30 tables of grid profiles of measures aimed wholly or partly at young people who have left compulsory education without qualifications. (RJM)
