3. Support to learners

3.2. Learners' participation in school life

Learners need to feel ownership of their learning and be given the opportunity to voice their views. Being active in decisions and activities of the school increases a sense of belonging and may help learners to develop leadership and social skills. Proactive efforts to engage marginalised learners and ensure their voices are heard are essential.

Youth coaches in Belgium-Flanders

In this project, young people are coaching their peers in secondary schools, aged between 11-18 years at risk of drop-out. The coaches are early school leavers themselves and have similar backgrounds. They have credibility and can detect problems in an early phase and prevent escalation. This project empowers them and helps them to achieve a qualification and, later, a job.
