Early school leaving (ESL) poses challenges on individual and social levels, with long-term consequences and high subsequent costs. Comprehensive approaches to tackle early school leaving therefore focus on the entire educational career, ideally comprising the intertwining of preventive, interventional and compensatory measures.
The aim of the 2015 Euroguidance conference is to highlight the structural causes of educational disadvantage and early school leaving as well as the challenges associated with the transition between school and work.
A key factor for the prevention of early school leaving is a strong and well-developed guidance system. Providing early information, advice and orientation to students and parents forms the basis for informed decision-making with regard to educational and employment choices. Next to the plenary discussion, five parallel workshops will be held, in which successful solutions regarding the prevention and compensation of early school leaving will be discussed and methods will be examined.
A market place will provide the opportunity to find out more about European and national projects as well as guidance services and for networking.
In the course of the conference, EPALE Austria celebrates its 1. anniversary and invites all conference members to sweet chestnuts and hot wine.
