Clare Education Centre Programmes

Project STAYON - Preventing school dropout

"STrategies And systems to reduce YOung people's Non-completion of upper secondary vocational education".
Clare Education Centre is invoved in the STAYON project in partnership with four other European countries - Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom and Greece.  The STAYON project uses quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate and develop in an innovatively trans-European context means of meeting the "Completion Challenge" in post-compulsory vocational education for 16-19 year olds.  We define this challenge as the urgent social and economic necessity to reduce drop-out rates and ensure young people's completion of courses leading to transferable qualifications in "New Skills for New Jobs".

We explore, develop and evaluate practical means of meeting this challenge "on the ground", asking "what works where and why?" within a variety of socio-economic, cultural and educational contexts and regions in 5 European countries. We give a particular emphasis to:

working in partnership with local employers in orienting VET courses to local employment opportunities and labour market needs in the context of their wider European dimensions and
reducing early leaving for students with migrant backgrounds, Roma pupils and gendered disadvantage
