This working group looks at ways to prevent young people from leaving school without qualifications and to improve the link between education and labour market.
The overall objective of the WG is to promote social inclusion through education by stressing the importance of
• early childhood care and education for future schooling.
• increasing the interest for vocational training among young people.
• bringing newly arrived young people into the system quickly in order to offer them an education and avoid them ending up in a state of alienation. Young people who are outside the system and under the age of 20 are a priority and the whole city is making a concerted effort to achieve good results.
• decreasing the number of early school leavers as we know how important it is for young people to have a good standard of education if they are to enter the labour market and if we are to prevent alienation.
