5. Stakeholders involvement

5.1. Multidisciplinary teams

A multidisciplinary approach to educational disadvantage and early school leaving (ESL) brings together professionals from within and beyond the school, including psychologists, social workers and health professionals. Multidisciplinary teams have the potential to offer a range of services to support young people at risk of educational disadvantage and ESL. This includes, for example, focus on children’s language development, mental health support, emotional support, bullying prevention skills, outreach to marginalised families and support for development of parenting skills.

Multi-Interdisciplinary teams for early school leaving prevention

This paper seeks to examine evidence regarding the potential for multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams to play a key role in the prevention of early school leaving. As part of developing a strategy for such multi/interdisciplinary teams, an important focus is on necessary and supportive conditions for their effectiveness, rather than a deterministic assumption of their inevitable effectiveness. The report highlights the need to provide strong strategic guidance to the teams on important issues to be engaged in by the teams such as mental health support, alternatives to suspension, marginalized families outreach, teacher conflict resolution and diversity training skills, bullying prevention skills, positive school climate promotion, engagement with parenting skills and a focus on children?s language development etc.

Stop-Dropout!

The overall objective of the project is to reduce the drop out rates of learners in vocational education and training, by providing materials and tools for counsellors and trainers to develop their own skills in working with groups, to detect potential dropouts and the special characteristics of learners’ groups, provide support adjusted to individual needs, and thereby improve the quality of their vocational education systems.
