BAR 09 Second Chances Full Report MAR 09.pdf

This report was prompted by Government policy in England which will require young people to continue in education or training until they are 18.  Controversially failure to do so without 'reasonable excuse' will constitute an offence. It gives prominence to young people's voices and contributes a detailed picture of how Barnardo's services work with young people who have disengaged,helping them to make the transition back to education, training or employment. It interprets young people's experiences with the accounts of those working closely with them to understand what succeeds in re-engaging young people and what the barriers and challenges may be.

The report is illustrated throughout with young people's stories about why they dropped out and how they view their progress.
