The E- learning package provides effective methodology on how to deal with students at risk of early school leaving and motivate them to continue their educational path.

In Belgium a group of secondary schools is involved in a pilot project supported by the European Social Fund. The “Accrojump” project is a cooperation project between eight technical and vocational schools located in the same region. This original project lets students at risk of early school leaving carry out traineeships in a partner school that offers other options better fitting to their personal project.
It is an innovative concept of “mobility” that can be applied inside a country or region. Thanks to this project the traditional competitive relationship between schools turns into complicity and solidarity.

For teachers the section of the portal is useful because it offers a series of tests to know and exalt the pupils’ potentialities. Teachers can also inform pupils about the concrete possibilities of working and living abroad.
The contents of the package are undoubtedly very useful, because they permit the deep knowledge of all the possibilities offered by the labour market.
In particular the Mobility section offers an exhaustive explanation of how many possibilities are now offered by the European Union for those who want to start relationships with foreign countries. Finally it stresses the importance and the opportunity to start entrepreneurship at school, so students can start to think about this possibility since they are attending their schools.

All modules are well written, especially the fifth one on “Mobility to learn and work”. It gives ideas about apprenticeship and I think in our society, it’s a good alternative for young students to enter the job market. It would be interesting for every European country to develop this kind of training.
