Gag, Maren; Schroeder, Joachim
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (13th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 10-13, 2015)
Educational and vocational research shows that there are considerable numbers of adolescents and young adults in the European member states who are failing to make the transition from school to vocational education and training (VET). In many European countries the formal educational systems, have made considerable progress in meeting the demand for integrative education and training concepts, but there is a lack of concepts and systems targeting vulnerable groups and in particular migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and other minorities subject to discrimination. The goal of a Leonardo da Vinci Partnership "Integration of vulnerable groups, focused on the transition from school to vocation or world of work" has been to identify problems in transition to the world of vocational education and training or to the world of work, and to develop a tool for targeted local and regional planning of education and training.
