Success and dropout pathways in vocational training

Meetings

Conference "Reducing Early Leaving from Education and Training in the Balearic Islands: Towards a Necessary Consensus"- 8th & 9th February 2018 - Parliament of the Balearic Islands

The project co-organized these workshops, which sought to contribute from civil society to advancing the fight against early leaving from education and training in the Balearic Islands. The main objective of the Conference was to promote the real exercise of the right to education of the population between 16 and 24 years. This means preventing them from leaving school and facilitating their return to the education and training system. More information and videos of the Conference on its website.
