Impact of the project
What is the expected impact of the project?
The consortium expects the project to have a wide range of impacts. This includes the changes that schools will be able to make based on the findings of the project, as well as policy developments at local and national level reducing the number of students leaving school early. We aim to report the findings in various formats so that teachers, families, researchers, policymakers can access information relevant to their needs to help them make transformative changes to the lives of children in school.
Here is a list of the expected impacts of the project:
Five groups will particularly benefit from the findings of the project. These include at least 2000 EU students between the ages of 6-16 years; at least 1000 students from disadvantaged groups; teachers and other professionals at 20 schools supporting students from disadvantaged groups; at least 100 policymakers working at the local, national or international level around early school leaving; and families and school members, especially those from disadvantaged groups.
We anticipate that there will be broader, longer-term impacts of the project. This includes the development of knowledge and research about early school leaving; insights into ways of reducing the burden of this problem on local and national governments; and impacts on society at large coming from children achieving all the skills they need to thrive.
