Senior research fellow of the HIERD Anna IMRE examined successful prevention projects of early school leaving in Lisbon, between the 16th and 19th February 2014.

The study visit was realised within the frames of the QALL (Qualifications for All) project, and is closely related to Ms. Imre’s work in the ET 2020 working group on schools policy. She examined three types of programs closely: 1. programs related to school districts (TEIP 1-2-3), 2. a program related to underachieving students (EPIS), and 3. programs related to support integration within education (Phoenix, Class Plus). Some elements of these programs are: increased financing of schools, strong methodological support and close partnership with families. Ms. Imre participated in discussions with program coordinators, school leaders and teachers, visited schools, and gained valuable insights that can be adapted into Hungarian efforts to prevent early school leaving.
