Developing indicators for early identification of young people at risk of temporary disconnection from learning


The Local Government Association (LGA) and the Children’s Improvement Board (CIB) have supported The NFER Research Programme, From Education to Employment, by financing this scoping project to gather evidence to help practitioners to identify the floating or ‘at risk’ and the cyclical or in transition young people (i.e. those at risk of temporary disconnection from learning).This report is also published as part of the LGA’s programme of research. Through further research we aim to provide evidence of strategies that may prevent disengagement at all. This will benefit young people and society and free resources to concentrate on the young people who are NEET.
