The research project, in line with the candidate's field of work and professional observation, investigated how the strengthening of the dual system (training and job) in Europe could affect the prevention of the drop-out phenomenon, also with reference to the decrease of the rate of young NEETs ( not in education, employment or training). The dual or circular system, or a training system borrowed from German culture and widespread in many Northern European countries, has had a significant impact on the most recent Italian political debate, with a view to adopting some medium-long term measures to reduce interest rates of unemployment among young people and therefore also of transition times between the school-university-job worlds. The project, through a traveling research around the UK , intends to investigate the phenomenon of early school leaving through direct listening to the life stories of boys, girls, institutions, associations, operators of the public and private job market (causes and factors of school dispersion, experimental of alternating school-job and apprenticeship projects). In Europe in the last year 4 million of young people have left the school. In Italy from1995 to 2018 3,5 million of student have left the school. Considering the actual objectives and needs of the EU (Sustainable Development Goals 2030) this project intends to investigate the phenomenon of early school leaving through direct listening to the life stories of boys, girls, institutions, associations, operators of the public and private job market (causes and factors of school dispersion, experimental of alternating school-job and apprenticeship projects). We need a solution. We commit to providing inclusive and equitable quality education at all levels. All people, irrespective of sex, age, race, ethnicity, and persons with disabilities, migrants, indigenous peoples, children and youth, especially those in vulnerable situations, should have access to life-long learning opportunities that help them acquire the knowledge and skills needed to exploit opportunities and to participate fully in society.
