Title Study Support Project, ''Life Lift Off''
Project Number 2012-1-NL1-LEO05-08719
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Study Support project ""life Lift Off will:
Provide intensive support for young people who lack the skills/motivation to work, but for whom school or college are not the right learning environment: Life Lift Off.
‘Catch’ and support young people before they drop out, and so to reduce the number of early school leavers in each country;
Bring together eight organisations in three different countries to share their approaches and successes in delivering life skills through their unique settings.
Study Support Project will develop projects aimed at giving support to young people aged between 14 and 23 who are at risk of leaving school early or have poor employment prospects. Study Support Project provides inspirational learning environments through performing arts, music, catering and business, in limited programs of 10 week per group and 3 hours per week.
By the end of the project, each country will have run multiple versions of its programme and so will have perfected a course model and methodology which can be disseminated amongst the partners. It is also anticipated that participants will be able to do professional work exchanges and so be able to learn first hand from their European partners how they recruit, key-work and upskill vulnerable young people. With our partnership we cover the entire field of education from the lower, middle and higher education.
