Social Inclusion of Students/Learners with Special Needs into Mainstream VET and Labour Market.
VET providers all over Europe experience the same problem: students leave education or training without completing it. Most of these early school leavers struggle with social, mental or learning problems and many end up being not in education, employment or training (NEET). In a society with lurking demographic challenges and economic and social problems NEET is not a solution, neither to the young people categorized as such, nor to society. Knowledge and good experiences are needed in order to succeed. The VET system needs well proven methods that can help teachers to successfully approach these students, the world of work needs knowledge that can help them to understand needs and skills specific for these young people, and the students need a 'system' that sees them as individuals with specific needs, strengths and potentials.
