Programs for retaining high school re-enterers for credentialling and employment
MetadataShow full item record
This paper investigates the likely characteristics of effective programs to prevent High School re-enterers from dropping out again. Based on what is known about Australian High school dropouts and other dropout prevention programs, the literature is surveyed for appropriate directions and focus. Recommendations include specific programs addressing numeracy, literacy, and personal development. Career counselling and increased linkages between school, work and vocational education should be encouraged. School climate should be encouraging and supportive. Mentoring and proselytising by “old” dropouts should prove useful also.
