APPLE: eArly warning Platform to Prevent youth from dropping out of school Education


Challenge


Early School Leaving remains a challenge for many EU member states, despite the significant developments that have been made regarding school integration of young people with vulnerable background.


According to Eurostat, in 2017, 10.6% of young people, 18-24 years old, in the EU did not complete their studies at upper-secondary level and did not follow any other educational path, for a variety of social, economic and family-related reasons. Early School Leaving is an obstacle for social and economic growth, thus Europe has to make full use of its human capital and take preliminary measures to tackle social exclusion of vulnerable groups.


Innovation


APPLE is a European initiative aiming to tackle Early School Leaving. By developing a guide for educators and an online early warning platform, consisting of key scientific material and tools, APPLE will equip educators, schools, educational organizations and authorities with the necessary tools to identify youth at risk of dropping-out and halt Early School Leaving.


Action

 

Capacity Building seminars for educators


Capacity building seminars, tailored to the needs of educators, will be organized. Participants will have the opportunity to get familiarized with innovative pedagogical methodologies and share experiences with peers.


Focus Groups with youth at risk of dropping-out


APPLE team will conduct focus groups with students at risk of dropping out of school, in order to collect first-hand information and experiences that will feed in APPLE guide for educators. Through

this process, the drivers of early dropping out of education and training will be identified.


Guide for educators


A guide for educators will be developed, including material on the profiles of young people at risk of dropping-out, drivers on early-dropping-out and personal stories of the program’s beneficiaries.


Online Early Warning platform


This action includes the development and pilot testing of an online platform for educators, schools, organizations and stakeholders, which will consist of key material (research papers, fact-based/experience-based practices and tools, etc.), as well as APPLE guides, curriculum and reports. APPLE platform will enable educators to apply innovative pedagogical methods and to easier identify youth at risk of dropping out of school.


Final conference in Greece


A final conference will be organized in Greece, in order to present the project results and outputs to relevant stakeholders (including educational authorities, schools/school heads, teachers and teachers’ associations, academia, policy makers and the wider public).
