Description

This study examined the tangible and intangible 12 month outcomes achieved by disadvantaged young people participating in an alternative learning program in regional Australia. It combined desk research, qualitative interviews and psychosocial measures to assess the program’s effectiveness. The report shares these findings along-with nine key enabling factors contributing to the program’s evidenced success. Learnings warrant consideration from policy-makers and others involved in the design and/or delivery of re-engagement programs for early school leavers.
