Lister on the Move
Start date: Jul 1, 2014, End date: Jun 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

One of the most important challenges in upper seondary school today is reducing the number of socalled "early leavers". The politicians in our area has stated that this is job no 1, and our school has worked continuously to improved the situation for our students. However, this is an international problem, and we have seen that we can learn a lot from schools in other countries, that have worked consistently to establish systems and take measures that they believe will work. Our goal is to learn more about what causes early leaving, and what the major critical phases and situations are. This, in turn, might contribute positively to the development at our school. We want to send key personell (leaders, advisors, teachers) to other schools (from Finland, Estonia and Spain) with which we already have had contact to learn more about how they approach this key issue. We know that they have achieved good results during the last years. In turn we will of course host representatives from our partners, so that there will be a mutual change of views and experiences. A side effect from such "jobshadowing" will also, we believe, be inclease international awareness and pedagogical and metodological reflection. Furthermore, we would like to send representatives to StayOn's seminars in Ireland (2014) and Greece (2015), where the reducing the number of realy leavers is the issue. We believe that the project will result in increased awareness in the organisation regarding reducing the number of early leavers, and will in turn lead to a positive development at our school. Every drop-out candidate who is encouraged and helped to stay on and complete his or her education, represents a considerable benefit for society, not to mention what it means to the young boy or girl in question.
