How can teachers contribute to lowering the rate of students dropping out from VET schools?
In order to address this sensitive topic, during 2018, ‘Skills for Jobs’ S4J supported all six partner VET schools develop, with technical assistance of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU), a methodology and package of instruments to assist students that are in risk of dropping out from school. Room teachers, psychologists and Development Unit teachers were trained in June how to apply the package of instruments.
With the beginning of the school year, vocational schools started implementing the package of instruments for Observation and Intervention against Dropping-Out, which provides a set of guidelines for room teachers, school psychologists and school management on how to identify and provide individual support for students at risk, so they can successfully continue and complete their vocational education.

The activity is coordinated by Coaching for VSD Contact Points (C4VSD), in-school coordinators (teachers working within or with the Development Units), in charge of dropping out and related issues.
Because of the Swiss-support, dropout rate was lowered from 14.5% (baseline 2015) to 9.2% in S4J partner VET schools, surpassing the project’s objective of decreasing the dropping out rate by 30%.
