This book describes an initiative that has proved effective in keeping more young people from dropping out of education, training or employment. The authors present case studies based on in-depth interviews with participants from five widely divergent European countries – the UK, Spain, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Ireland – which illustrate the effectiveness of early intervention in young people’s lives. This independently verified study shows the significant personal and economic benefits gained by identifying the groups most vulnerable to dropout early on and then working with them proactively to keep them engaged in education.
