Keeping Young People in (Vocational) Education: What Works? Briefing Note
Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training
Too many young people leave education (including vocational education) too soon. Yet early leavers are at greater risk of long-term unemployment, poverty and crime, and now cost the European economy 1.25% of GDP. This brief report looks at the reasons why young people leave and what could be done to end this trend. Considerations for policy-makers are included.
