Course on Prevention of School Early Leaving

Also available in: French Italian Romanian Spanish English

External Support & Co-operation Module
by Mayo Education Centre

This module ‘External Support and Cooperation’ encourages participants to examine causes and supports for teachers and students to address and prevent early school leaving. The module includes a range of scenarios for reflection, an exploration of teacher responses to students in danger of leaving school early, and an outline of potential supports. It is an interactive module inviting participants to engage with the early school leaver, explore the causes, consequences and the supports in tackling the issue.

School responses and support systems differ widely from one country to another. They are dependent on the ethos of the school and also the national educational system. The module therefore is one of exploration. It encourages the trainee to explore the particular situation in the particular country.


  • To assist teachers to identify students at risk of early school leaving
  • To explore the reality for the teacher and the student
  • To encourage teachers to explore internal and external supports that assist in the prevention of early school leaving.
