Sysco Polska Sp. z o.o. in cooperation with the Education Office in Warsaw, Eurocultura oraz Sysco Business Skills Academy Ltd is carrying out an international research project entitled Early School Leaving – monitoring and prevention solutions (Przedwczesne kończenie nauki – monitoring i przeciwdziałanie).

The project goal is to provide a comprehensive, internationally comparative analysis of the early school leaving (ESL) phenomenon. The expected outcomes are to improve the monitoring of ESL, counteracting the phenomenon and monitoring systems, methods of ESL counteracting and reintegrating students back into education. The project aims to deliver an in-depth analysis of current situation and to come up with solutions that will lead to significant improvements in this field.

The project is being carried out in a partnership between Italy Poland and the UK and involves organisations working with education system institutions on a day-to-day basis. The participating institutions have expertise and experience in the area of HR development in the education system and provide direct or indirect support to young people at a risk of early school leaving.

An analysis of existing ESL monitoring systems will be carried out to identify areas for improvement. Best practice in the field of ESL prevention and student reintegration is to be highlighted, and conclusions from the research will result in recommendations for action.

Research results will be presented at a series of conferences summarising the different stages of the project. The reports summarising the research outcomes will also be published.

The project will contribute to a significant knowledge increase in the area of ESL. It will enable a creative exchange of good practices between partners and the development of new solutions. In addition a training package will be developed to provide support for professionals dealing with an ESL issue on a day-to-day basis (including teachers, educators, school directors, etc).
